They befriend many of the residents and have adventures in magical lands that visit the top of the tree.

I’m so glad I revisited this work, and I am tempted to read the other three books in the series when I get a chance. Their father has a cousin who lives in the tree and would you believe it — the cousin's name is Moonface (without a hyphen). It seems incredibly easy to climb and in all the rushing about nobody every seems in danger of falling off.The plot follows two new children, Robin and Joy, who have read The Enchanted Wood and want to join in the adventures. Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and loved dogs, gardening and the countryside. Jo" has been changed to "Joe" also Bessie was changed to "Beth" and "Fanny" changed to "Frannie" and think its been done may be due to political correctness etc, I'm by no means part of a PC brigade and prefer the old-school however not alot has been changed and still a fantastic book. D. James, Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, the full 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series by George R.

The children soon explore the tree, meeting the strange people who live there, including Moonface, Silky the pixie and Dame Washalot, and have amazing adventures in the lands that come and go at the top - the Land of Ice and Snow, the Land of the Three Bears, and everyone's favourite - the Land of Take-What-You-Want! I spent a couple of hours today revisiting these old friends and I was quite amazed by how much I remembered after more than fifty years. But, I always prefer to believe that even if we can never regain our childhood innocence, then we can at least borrow some of it for a temporary time while reading the storybooks that made us so happy when we were kids. Jo with his sisters Bessie and Fanny are the anchors from where all the adventures begin and they are pleasant kids whose make-up could be compared to other Blyton characters such as Molly and Peter in the aforementioned Wishing Chair tales.I’m pretty sure Millie would like us to work through the whole series, so maybe it will grow on me, I’m certainly happy to give it a chance. No, the Faraway Tree Slap is an elderly lady who won't stand any nonsense and our heroes have a tough time when they are in her charge.

In the middle of the wood is the Magic Faraway Tree, a tree that grows right up to the clouds and from the top of the tree you can travel to magical worlds. I consider it a privielige that I get to read it to both my own child (5 years old) and my class (NZ yr 3, so 7 turning 8).

At the very top of the tree they discover a ladder which leads them to a magical land which is different on each visit, because each place moves on from the top of the tree to make way for a new land. There was the land of Topsy Turvy, the Land of Take-What-You-Want, the land of Birthdays etc and many more exciting ones that I loved the book so much for. They discover that it is inhabited by magical people, including Moon-Face, Silky, The Saucepan Man, Dame Washalot, Mr. The poet William Blake once said that the one way to achieve innocence is to look at life through the eyes of a child. Enid Blyton is a very familiar name to me, I must have read most of both the Famous Five and the Secret Seven stories as a child, but somehow The Faraway Tree series passed me by completely.
