The Magic Key

Collingwood was engaged by Hit Entertainment to bring the enormously successful The Oxford Reading Tree reading programme, The Magic Key, to life as a fully-animated television series.

Episodes feature the children from the storybooks – Kipper, twins Biff and Chip, Wilf, Wilma and, of course, Floppy the Dog – in brand new adventures exploring the meaning of key words and how they are used. Like the books, the series’ strong educational foundation aims to bring alive the magic of language and develop basic language skills in an enjoyable and accessible way.

The Magic Key is published by Oxford University Press.
The books are written by Roderick Hunt and illustrated by Alex Brychta.
