This month’s recommended read is ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’, by the well-known author Enid Blyton. Meena Danishmal in Year 6, who is currently reading the trilogy, which includes ‘The Enchanted Wood’ and ‘The Folk of the Faraway Tree’, recommended this book. Meena is part of our KS2 book club.
This book is also Miss Jones’ and Mrs Parrish’s favourite children’s book. Enid Blyton has written many other childhood novels including ‘The Famous Five’.
Here is a blurb for our recommended read:
‘Jo, Bessie and Fanny take their cousin Rick on an adventure he’ll never forget to the magic Faraway Tree, where he meets Moon-Face, Silky the fairy and Saucepan Man, and visits all the different lands at the top of the Faraway Tree. Like the Land of Spells, the crazy Land of Topsy-Turvy, and the land of Do-As-You-Please, where the children ride a runaway train!’
