[I’m one of the Kindle’s biggest fans, and will buy as much as I can in digital form. But there are a few books I can’t get rid of. This is the first in an infrequent and limited series featuring those physical books that mean enough to earn their place in the box that moves house with us.]
I loved The Faraway Tree series as a kid. The idea of climbing a tree and finding a multitude of different lands at the top is so intriguing, and so limitless! I’d be the first to buy these in digital form, except the fact that the new books are all modern-kid friendly. These three editions are quite old…
…and thus full of unsuitable names.
The new blurbs read like this: “When Joe, Beth and Frannie move to a new home, an Enchanted Wood is on their doorstep. And when they discover the Faraway Tree, that is the beginning of many magical adventures!” Humph.
But it matters not. Moon-Face was always my favourite. Here he is, pondering.
