In spite of the mixed messages ascribed to Enid Blyton's novels during the 1970s, Noddy remains, for boomers, a symbol of childhood fantasy about life. His is a close-knit community, with strong friendships, where justice prevails and the endings are always happy. This work, set against the backdrop of an urban development site, speaks to the menace, randomness and uncertainty of our tenure and to the loss of childhood dreams.
CHAPTER 1 “NODDY’S GONE"
"If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all.”
Hamlet : William Shakespeare.
