Synopsis

Noddy and the Magic Bagpipes by Enid Blyton

The magic and colour of Toyland comes to life as never before in Make Way for Noddy , a brand new 100x10 minute animation series produced in CGI (computer generated imagery) technology. This major new TV production features the much-loved regular Toyland characters, a whole set of original stories and a new song for every episode. Noddy decides to move house. He hooks up his little house-for-One to his car and he and Master Tubby Bear set out to find the perfect place to live. But it's not easy. When Noddy tries living next door to Tessie Bear, he has to share with her chickens. Next to Mr Sparks garage there is no room for anyone when the tow truck comes out. And in Town Square, there are too many Bouncy Balls. In the end, it's Big-Ears who comes up with the perfect solution!

About the Author

Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton is one of the most-loved authors in children’s publishing. With over 700 titles published, Enid Blyton’s stories remain timeless classics, adored by children throughout the world.

Soon after Enid Blyton was born in 1897, she fell gravely ill with whooping cough. Her father, Thomas Blyton stayed up with her night after night until her cough subsided and she recovered. From that time on, Enid followed her father wherever he went, and it was through her father that she developed a love of nature and animals – an enthusiasm which stayed with her throughout her life. It was also her father who instilled in Enid her love of books, and she would often be seen sneaking into her father’s library and borrowing a pile of books.

As a young woman Enid was faced with many choices; her father had planned a career in music for her, while she felt drawn to writing. In the end, she became a teacher, though her passion for writing never dwindled. In 1922, a collection of poems by Enid was published - it was her first step toward her dream of becoming an author.

At 27 years old, Enid married Hugh Pollock and moved to London. Enid had two children with Hugh, and soon after wrote her first novel, The Adventures of the Wishing Chair. Enid divorced Hugh after almost 20 years of marriage, and remarried Kenneth Waters in 1943.

Throughout the 40 and 50s, Enid wrote books at a colossal pace: adventure stories, mysteries, magical stories, farming stories, stories for younger children, best-selling series like The Famous Five and Noddy…her writing knew no bounds!

Apart from breaks to play golf and spend time with her children, Enid’s working week was consumed with writing new stories, correcting proofs and answering the hundreds of letters she was, by now, receiving weekly. She explained that her characters evolved organically and her stories seemed to naturally form, she described herself as “merely a sightseer, a reporter, and interpreter.”

Enid fell ill with Alzheimer’s disease in her old age (a disease that affects people’s memory) and she died in 1963. Her spirit lives on in her books and she is remembered as one of the most-loved and celebrated children’s authors.
