Format: Paperback
One of my favourite books of my childhood. I flicked through this new edition in the bookshop the other day and was disappointed to note not only that the original charming illustrations been replaced by awful characterless rubbish, but 'Cousin Dick' has been renamed throughout as 'Cousin Rick', presumably because a'modern' publisher would be ashamed to let a child read the word 'Dick' for fear that they'd undergo a paroxysm of giggling from which they'd never recover, or perhaps through fear of not appearing sufficiently streetwise.... Senseless, pointless meddling by marketing idiots with nothing better to do; lamentable pre-emptive cowardice; total lack of respect for an author who has served the publishing industry well for more than half a century; and insulting condescension to her audience (would they do this to an author whose books are bought by any other section of the reading public? "Moby Rick", perhaps? I don't think so).

It's a great book anyway, but boycott these idiots and find a secondhand copy of the older edition if you can.

I agree completely with "Angry Tree Dweller" who articulated my fury perfectly. I too will continue to search the second-hand bookshops for this favourite from my childhood.

All the faraway tree stories are wonderfully vivid. Kids will love following the adventures of the faraway tree as it leads to the fascinating lands that appear at the top of the tree. Mr SaucePanMan, Dame WashALot, MoonFace and the other adorable characters never cease to entertain. Unfortunately like most Enid Blyton books, you cannot get this title easily in the US. I ordered my copy from the UK Amazon.com

As a child I adored The Magic Faraway Tree book. I have fond memories of the book and the adventures they took me on. I am 27 and when I when I remember back to the books I used to read, this book sticks in my mind most of all. My advice to any child is to read it, you will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This book has a great lot of fantasy.Enid Blyton has really got wonderful imagition.All the characters in the book have suitable names for their nature, for example Moonface has a moon-shaped face,Dame Washalot loves to wash a lot,Silky the fairy has silky hair and wears a dress made of silk.there are many more other charactersin this book. You will have to read the book to find out about them.The Lands too are totaly amazing. My favourate ones are The Land of Goodies because they are made up of all the things i love to eat,The Land of Magic Medicines so that my family can get well soon when they are not feeling well and The Land of Spells so that i can make my cat sing too. The book is about four children- Jo,Fanny,Bessie and Dick who explore lands in the magic faraway tree with moonface,silky and
saucepan man and have narrow escapes.

I read and enjoyed these books when I was a child. Even if many years have passed (i have somehow lost my copies), the stories have remained vividly on my mind. I just had to have them again! Like the other reviewer said, copies are hard to find here in the US. I got mine from Australia (Magic Faraway Tree, Folk of the Faraway Tree and Enchanted Wood). I have re-read them all, and once again brought back happy childhood memories. I will definitely read these books to my kids someday, hoping that they will enjoy it as much as I did. :)

The story is great, just as I remember from my own childhood.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case. there has been no attempt to format it for the kindle. It looks like it was just scanned in.

Page numbers from the original book will appear randomly at the end of a line.

Chapter titles also appear at the end of a paragraph.

There has been no attempt to format it as an e-book and to that end the price is too high. If they want to sell an ebook they could at least make some effort to prepare the book.

I can remember reading the many stories that were about The Magic Far Away Tree. What a vivid imagination these books gave you. When I was very young I used to be in bed at night and think up places to visit that would come to the Magic Tree. The Magic Far Away Tree is a special tree in the woods and inside it were all sort of funny characters who make their home inside the tree. It was a huge tree that reached into the sky but the strangest thing about it was if you climbed all the way to the top it was in the clouds and inside the cloud was a different magical land. Oh, what fun and adventures the children who climbed the tree had. I credit the whole series of Magic Far Away Tree adventure with making me an avid reader which I still am today. I absolutely devoured these stories when I was about 7 years old. I bought this copy for my grandchildren to enjoy -- not exactly Harry Potter but a little more charming I think.
