Same with J K Rowling.

R. Dahl is (was?) pretty good. Charlie and the chocolate factory and Matilda.

JRR Tolkien, author of The Lord of The Rings, the most read book after the bible of the 20th Century.

I would say Dan Brown of the famous Da Vinci Code and certainly J.K. Rowling of the Harry Potter Series...

Enid Blyton was more of a childhood favourite
