Noddy Goes to Toyland, 1st edn 1949 (Enid Blyton)The first Noddy story to appear in book form, published by Sampson Low in 1949.

Tony Summerfield of the Enid Blyton Society notes that: Noddy actually made his debut when the first two books were serialised in the Sunday Graphic. Interestingly the second book, Hurrah for Little Noddy was the first to appear, serialised from June 5 to July 31, 1949 and this was followed by Noddy Goes to Toyland from August 7 to September 25, 1949. This was published as the first Noddy book in November of that year.
