A letter Blyton wrote to the pupils of the Open Air special school in Barnsley, South Yorks, which had just ordered 12 of her books.<br />
<br />
Enchanting photographs of children's author Enid Blyton with the pet dog that inspired many of her early works have come to light.<br />
<br />
The black and white photos depict Bobs, Blyton's fox terrier who became a celebrity in his own right after she started writing letters from him in the magazine Teacher's World in 1933.<br />
<br />
The signed letter and the picture postcards were sold by International Autograph Auctions of Nottingham for £200.
