New Noddy book


In 2009 it will be 60 years since the first Noddy book was published. According to the Daily Telegraph, a new book, provisionally entitled Noddy’s Birthday Surprise, has been written by Blyton’s grand-daughter, Sophie Smallwood, and will be illustrated by Robert Tyndall, who worked with Blyton in the early 1950s.

Interesting to see that Chorion, the firm that owns the rights to Noddy, earns a reported £180 million a year from sales of Noddy books.
