The 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, regardless. Bunbury, Stephanie (1 July 2012). "Rewrites a blight on Blyton's legacy ... by golly". The Sydney Morning Herald . Retrieved 14 October 2022. For the 1% of you who don't know, Jo, Bessie, and Fanny (yes this is the non PC edition) move from the city to the country with their parents. They live in a cottage near some woods and when they explore the woods they find a whole bunch of exciting creatures and all of the animals can talk. In the middle of the woods is the world's tallest tree, knowAlthough I remembered that Moonface loved toffee, I had forgotten about the amazing food they eat. I really want to try a Pop Biscuit! They sound so yummy! Enid has always been good at the written food porn!

This has always been my favourite of the trilogy. I always really liked Curious Connie. Even though she was rude, spoilt and sulky in the beginning? But then she didn't really seem that spoilt? Who wouldn't want to make a good first impression on meeting new people and wearing a nice dress? And who wouldn't be sulky after getting stained with ink and dumped with washing water. Sure she deserved the first one, she was told not to peek in on the Angry Pixie but I don't know. It feels like she was unfairly demonised for being a bit nosy. Al treilea volum al seriei mi-a plăcut mult mai mult decât al doilea. Alături de cei trei frați o găsim pe o Connie ,fetița răsfățată a unei prietene. 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 out.The stories take place in an enchanted wood in which a gigantic magical tree grows – the eponymous 'Faraway Tree'. The tree is so tall that its topmost branches reach into the clouds and it is wide enough to contain small houses carved into its trunk. The wood and the tree are discovered by three children who move into a house nearby. They befriend many of the residents and have adventures in magical lands that visit the top of the tree. takes you to the different worlds at the top of the tree too. So you'll see what it's like to be Topsy-Turvy, with policemen walking around on their hands. Or how about spending a day, in the land of toys. Or even better, the Land of Goodies, where chocolate muffins grow on trees. Tree Observations and Journaling: Take the children outside to observe trees. Provide notebooks for them to sketch and write about what they see – the size, shape, colour and any animals or insects they notice living on it.
