Adventure Series Books
Born in 1897 in South London, Enid Mary Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Enid Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.

That need more encouragement to read.
Because of political correctness school libraries no longer have enough books that can be considered traditional 'boy' books - even the classic boys adventure books seem to be absent these days (Treasure Island, The Last of the Mohicans, Man in the Iron Mask, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Around the World in Eighty Days, The 3 Musketeers etc).
The best author still publishing books that boys would love is Terry Pratchetts 'Discworld' series, he also writes a 'Tiffany Aching' series aimed at girls.

I recommend my own book, Escape to Destiny, a young adult sci/fi fantasy adventure released in April 2008. Escape to Destiny is the first book in a series that my writing partner and I are putting out. The next volume, The Horicon Experience, will be out in late summer, but I don't have a release date yet. Publishers can be a little slow... Our books make up the Galactic Axia series. We have created a commonwealth of planets throughout the Milky Way galaxy, and beyond in some cases. We've created a 20-book series of books that carry our characters on adventures throughout galaxy. This first book, Escape to Destiny, is the story of an orphan boy on an obscure planet that must escape the torments of his abusive, alcoholic brother and make his own destiny in the universe
