She is completely self-absorbed,driving Hugh to drink and then to another woman. Enid uses the children as emotional blackmail to get a divorce on her terms before marrying Kenneth Waters, a weak man similar to her father.

lives of real people. Some scenes have

been invented, and the facts have been

unified for the sake of the narrative.

Are we ready? Good morning to both.

Wait. Live with the green light.

Here we go.

Miss Blyton ... You

must be one of the

most prolific writers

of all time.

Yes, probably I am.

Although there have been rumors

malicious about a. ..

... The idea that

I write my own books.

I would like to make

clear, here and now that

these rumors have no


- Of course, I have suggested

no time ... - It is very important ...

make clear that, for the sake

all my young readers.

Trust me implicitly.

No matter if they are in palaces

or tenements, take

a sense of my books

security, a sense

be subject to

something, and knowledge

what is right and what is wrong.

You've said it before and I say again.

I am the guardian of

ethics of our children.

But how I can keep

that position if there

the slightest doubt

I'm not what I look like?

Translation by Karah

Thank you. Thank you very much.

How charming. Charming.

- Okay. Y. .. "?

And this beauty, eh?


Look at that. Mira.

Is not it beautiful?

Thomas, these children are starving.

They need to eat and have a cold.

Do you care about something or you do not care?

Oh, for God's sake, Theresa, for!

After all this time,

How could you do this?

You who led me to do it!



Gets inside.

Let me tell you a story.

Children and dogs were Snapper

enjoying a vacation on the coast.

Snapper was the dog

fair and sweet in the world.

Snapper never disappoint them,

but always had

getting into trouble.

Mother had prepared

with a great picnic

all the things that

like children,

but children were not realized

Snapper that had escaped without them.

Wake up, guys.

I have something to say.

Your father has abandoned us.

"Dropped what?

- To us.

- No!

Your father has been found

another woman, Enid.

Enid, come here.


Enid, listen.

Enid ...

She drew the curtains

and looked toward the cliffs.

There was a secret path.

One who did not know anyone else

descending to the cave

rock, with its secret tunnel.

There might escape.


- Will return.

- I will not.

What is supposed to

I tell people?

Tell them the truth. Me

I'm preparing for

be a professor, not by joining a circus.

- It is not good. You should ...

- Stay home and sew socks?

I know.

That's what I've said.

What about your siblings?

"Dear Sirs,

I send my book

poems and short stories

to your kind attention. "

"Although I am preparing

to be a teacher,

My true ambition is

to become writers. "

"And I hope you find

potential in my work. "

"Sincerely, Enid Blyton."

"Dear Miss Blyton,"

"Although we found

his writing ... "

".. The most entertaining

unfortunately, not

site in our list

Current. I hope that ... "

".. In our meeting

Last week's editorial. "

"However, we regret

inform you that we did not find ... "

".. As we were with your work, but

we have no place in our current list. "

"My advice to all

young writers

is to keep trying. Sincerely ...".

'When I grow up, do not forget

I think things today. "

'Do not forget the kind of thing

I like to do or say. "

'Do not be like the people I meet

that seem too old '

'And have forgotten things

did when they were eight years old. "

'There are many other things,

Of course, also remember. "

'And then, when I grow up, remember

what they like to do to children. "

'I will know what they are afraid'

'And I know the things they hate. "

'And I hope that I want,'

'But know that long

I spent eight years. "

"Dear Miss Blyton,

please send

his manuscript of poems and stories. "

"Would you please call us at

our office for an appointment "

"Able to talk about

their job much better? "

"Sincerely, Hugh Pollock."

So, Miss Blyton, suffice it to say,

we can do something with their

stories, and definitely we will.

Can we talk about it in the food?

Of course, but above all

we recruit, right?

Autograph where I put the cross, here.

Congratulations, Ms. Pollock.

- Mr. Pollock.

- You're not

Miss Blyton.

Do not look, no matter what happens.

Do you understand me?

Do not look. Do not look.

- Mmm, weighed.

- Open it.

Thank you. Thank you.

But do not talk.


That no.


That no.

- What is wrong with that?
