    Book 3 of The Faraway Tree was a step down from the first book but it was as good as book 2 and the ratings on Goodreads is pretty high Very high in fact considering that it's a half forgotten bookThe person who visits Jo Bessie and Fanny is their mother's friend's child The author loved not only to name stuff naughtily she liked to write up naughty characters Connie Haynes is one such exampleThe magic lands that visit the top of the Faraway Tree are on thin ice because obviously there is a limit to what the imagination can do when one is ageing and having experimented with all permutations of storytelling But the book is really good and I'm giving it 5 stars from the bottom of my heart

    Celyn and I have completed our marathon re read of the Faraway trilogy The third book is like the second simply a collection of tree related episodes each fairly self contained This time the new child to be introduced to the tree and improved by the experience is Connie daughter of a friend of the mother Connie's fault is being curious This is in itself curious Part of it is the use of the word 'curious' in place of nosy Though I suppose if that was the extent of it Blyton could have brought in Nosy Nelly Another element does appear to the the now anachronistic view that curiosity particularly in girls is an undesirable trait The book is over 70 years old though and even in the 'sanitized' versions some evidence of its age will show through In the 'grand battle' at the end the girls are all sent up the tree with Silky to wait while the boy Moonface and male small folk sort the trolls outA variety of magic lands are visited some of them the lands of secrets and of knowalls specifically to show the undesirable nature of nosiness or curiosity There's a return to the land of Dame SlapSnap tooIt's a bit curious that the magic medicine used to cure the children's mother in book 2 isn't mentioned given that Connie's mother is sick for months but then again they didn't even bother to cure Rick's sick mother with it in the book where they got it even though there was some left over Here's a uote from book 2 'We'll put the rest of the bottle of magic medicine away' she said 'I don't need it any but it would be very useful if someone else is ill' And the only reason Rick is there in book 2 and Connie in book 3 is because their mothers are really ill and unable to look after themIt's also a bit odd that given access to knowalls and secret tellers who can answer literally any uestion they children limit themselves to things like 'the secret for growing bigger apples' and 'where I left my second best yo yo'The finale is a threat to the tree itself which appears to be dying There's a failed attempt to breach the gem caves beneath the tree wherein trolls are damaging the tree's roots these 'caves' seem to be um earth caves as the only thing that stops rabbits burrowing in from underneath is a stone floor An entrance is eventually effected by using a type of enlarged caterpillar to chew down through the tree and out through the roots into the cave This seems highly improbable what about the earthstones? is hard to visualize and makes you wonder why the caterpillars couldn't chew through the cave doors far easily but heyIt's neither better or worse than book 2 though the formula could wear thin Celyn enjoyed it Join my 3 emails a year newsletter #prizes

    Rereading a childhood favourite can sometimes prove hazardous Often what so appealed to our younger selves we later find riddled with plot holes become distanced from the young protagonists or find them just generally unsuited for an adult readership For this reason I had stayed away from my once beloved Enid Blyton for so longThe Faraway Tree series were particular favourites of mine however and I had been hankering to revisit them for some time I knew I was taking the risk of marring my rose tinted memories of this series but decided to proceed regardlessIt was with much relief that I found the delight and awe so often felt on early readings as soon as I opened the very first page This series is just an absolute joy to behold Of course there is an element of predictability to the events and the safety of the characters is continually ensured but the whimsical beauty of the setting the hilarious anecdotes from the characters the soaring feats of bravery the fantastically odd beings and the wonderful and sometimes not so lands visited all made this an utterly charming read and escape from reality for my my pre teen my teenage and my now adult self

    I was seven years old when I was shepherded into Mrs Hazard's class deemed stupid and unwilling to learn by my teachers of the previous years I had spent kindergarten a scared confused child who couldn't focus on the words on the board in front of me Year One had been the same; why was everyone else reading and writing and I couldn't grasp it? But here was a gentle woman who smiled down on us and said that we were going to read a story I was bored I knew I wouldn't be able to follow the words but then she picked up a gorgeous picture book and started reading I was hookedAround that same time someone and I've never been sure who recommended my parents take me to get my eyes checked Hallelujah with those ugly frames I could see and the dreaded words formed Within weeks I was writing my own stories magical stories about funny lands and especially about animals By the end of the year I was no longer thought of as stupid and school become this marvelous place where you could go and leave with your head full of things you'd never known beforeOf course this book was a Faraway tree novel Mrs Hazard had been using this book as a tool for years and used it up until her retirement as far as I know I'm sure I wasn't the only person enthralled by the Faraway Tree; it took me out of that classroom and into a world that didn't judge whether you were smart only kind goodhearted and polite Years later I was asked to pick three different medias for an imaginative English elective I choose a poem compulsory for the whole class Kingdom Hearts and this series I spoke for ten minutes about how the imagination grows from an understanding of language; that the roots to the images in our heads is the understanding of that language Every person when hearing the sentence 'The Cat sat on the Mat' pictures a different cat a different mat according to their own understanding and interpretation But the language is only the root the trunk of the tree being the understanding of the roots and the branches arching up as a reflection of those roots stretching endlessly toward the sky and reaching ever upwards in understanding I even spoke of the lands at the top of the tree and how imaginative they are Once again The Faraway Tree helped me improve my grade and impress my teachersSo this series means a lot to me Sure some people see the racism and stereotypes in Enid's work But go back and ask that seven year old and she will see none of these things She sees magic and understanding Enid was a turning point in my life the thing that made me long to tell my own stories and have my own adventures And there's nothing wrong with that

    This was the first of the Faraway Tree books I ever read though it is the last in the series and still remains my favourite Cousin Connie comes to stay with Jo Bessie and Fanny and they of course take her to visit the faraway tree folk among them the friendly Moonface pretty Silky and eccentric but loveable Saucepan Man Despite the children's advice Connie insists on wearing her best clothes which bear the brunt of the Angry Pixie's ink Dame Washalot's water and the slippery slip which she “uses” without the customary cushion In time she learns her lesson not before getting into her fair share of trouble and losing her voice in the process and the children have a whole set of adventures visiting some very interesting lands including the land of the stupids where meals are eaten backwards pudding first and the land of tea parties with pretty iced cakes Connie if I remember right gets them out of trouble at Dame Slap's school and they make an interesting trip to the land of treats where we find Connie isn’t entirely “cured” ordering and getting a “sardine icecream” complete with tails while Mr Saucepan with his hearing troubles orders Jo a “bear” instead of pear tart and cream which comes decorated with teddy bears But before their trip to the land of treats they must rescue the tree from trouble I love how imaginative this series is―the whole idea of a magic tree that grows every kind or at least all kinds of fruit and has houses inhabited by the most interesting of fairy folk and at the very top is a door to many different worlds lands that come and go each week And the lands Dame Slap’s School birthday land tea party land the land of treats of the stupids of secrets and of the know it alls and nursery rhymes―what a marvellous time she must have had creating them and what fun we had reading about them A childhood favourite which I still love

    I was lucky enough to read my sisters' copy that wasn't americanized I hate it that in the newer versions Dame Slap was scaled down to pracically nothing They should have left the kids' names alone too What is wrong with having a girl named Fanny? There ought to be a law against these things

    “You see the Enchanted Wood is uite near here And in the middle of it is the biggest tallest tree in the world very magic It’s called the Faraway TreeNostalgia is in itself magic The stories that we loved as children live on in us Sometimes those stories fade over time lose a little of their definition But should you revisit fond childhood stories? That’s the uestion I asked myself as I began to re read The Folk of the Faraway Tree one of my most beloved childhood storiesIt’s called the Faraway Tree because its top is so far away and always sticks up into some strange magic land there a different one every week”I read about Curious Connie and the Faraway Tree for what felt like both the first and the millionth time; re discovered the children Joe Beth and Frannie Silky the fairy Saucepan man Dame Washalot Mister Whatzisname and of course Moon face who lives at the very top of the Faraway Tree I fell into spellbinding lands The Land of Marvels The Land of Secrets and the Land of Enchantments the ladder that never ends and Hot Cold Goodies I remembered what had fuelled my imagination; sent it soaring to enchanted lands ”Two books for a book wormTwo butts for a goatTwo winks for a winkleWho can’t sing a note” However in re reading with a fresh perspective I stumbled on an uncomfortable truth This book like many of Enid Blyton’s works contains problematic content This 2007 reprint amended the most problematic and outdated references; “slapping” is now “snapping” “Fanny” is instead “Frannie” but the echo of the original remainedIt had lost some of its magic for me after all “It wasn’t only a tree it was a home for lots of little people and the path to strange adventures far above”My answer to “should you revisit fond childhood stories?” is this read what makes you happy Read what fills you with joy For those interested in diving into the Enchanted Wood series for the first time I would advise reading the reprint

    This is the third book in this series and while you can read them out of order and everything will make sense I highly recommend you read the titles in the order the author intendedThis book has always been my least favourite of the original three books in this series though that said it is still very much a five star readI used to read this series over and over again as a child and I can see why I couldn't stop listening to this audiobook and I loved Kate's impression of Connie Connie is a friend of the family who needs to spend time living with the children as her mother is taken sick At the beginning of the story she is an insufferable little brat who has clearly been spoiled rotten The children along with all our favourite characters from the Faraway Tree soon manage to bring out Connie's good side though She learns to believe in all the magic that happens in the Enchanted Wood and it is so fun to see Connie change and develop as a characterI highly recommend this series for people of all ages Children can learn a lot about discipline from these books along with having their imaginations filled with wonderful images Meanwhile adults can enjoy the story too for the wonderful adventures and it will bring out the child in anyone

    This is one of my most favouritecherished books of all time My dad read this to me when he tucked me into bed Fortunately my Dad is from England so I don't have the lousy American version I couldn't find the cover of it on here How sad Anyway this book is full of enchantment and wonders It's about this village that exists in a tree and all of the weird creatures that live there Some near by children befriend them and join them on their many adventures I always thought that was the coolest thing ever to have an entire village up in a tree If you ever get the chance to read this amazing book I suggest you do You must keep in mind though that this book is all about adventure and getting away from the world So don't be expecting some hidden meaning or something It's just a children's book that is for fun No analyzing allowed
