The Faraway Tree Adventures by Enid Blyton 10 Colour Stories Books Box Set - Age 7-9 - Paperback
Prepare to escape to the land of make-believe with The Complete Faraway Tree Adventures 10 Stories Collection by legendary and classic author, Enid Blyton. This is a wonderful addition to the growing titles of every budding young reader but is particularly aimed at children aged between 7-9. Bridging the gap between picture books and helping them as they move towards stories with longer texts and more complex sentences, children will truly enjoy the colourful approach to these books that have received a modern makeover. Bringing them into the 21st century, The Complete Faraway Tree Adventures 10 Stories Collection is great introduction to their very first chapter books, encouraging children to become more confident in reading longer stories, either to read aloud or independently. Getting stuck into one of these books will bring plenty of enjoyment, either during the day or as part of their bedtime routine.
Originally written in the 1950’s by iconic author Enid Blyton, these modernised kids’ books have quickly become a popular choice for eager bookworms and there’s an impressive ten titles to keep them going. Not only will children recognise the name of this famous author (and parents too!) but they’ll appreciate the brilliant plots that unravel in these fiction books, fun-filled with imagination and different lands for children to escape to. Each story has its own crazy challenge, amazing adventure and daring discovery to be made as readers follow a famous trio every step of the way. The three main characters that children will soon become familiar with are Joe, Beth and Frannie – who form a wonderful friendship with plenty of ups and downs, just as young readers would experience themselves. These books prompt children to ask questions, helping the trio to navigate their way around each new land from a silly school setting to a place with magical medicine. As soon as one book is finished, they’ll be eagerly onto the next!
In The Complete Faraway Tree Adventures 10 Stories Collection, Joe, Beth, and Frannie move to a new house next to a forest where they discover a tree full of magical creatures: pixies, gnomes, talking animals, and more. The tree stretches into the clouds and connects tree climbers to an endless number of lands that are swirling above the clouds. Some of the lands are delightfully fun, but some are dangerous -- and there's always the risk that the land will spin away from the tree and the children will be stuck there forever. In the later two books, a cousin and friend join the three kids on delirious adventures, and the parents are oddly fine with the kids disappearing with strange beings -- Moonface and Saucepan Man -- for an entire day. Each book is like a series of short stories about the different lands, loosely tied together with a quest the kids need to go on.
To match the impressive storylines, each book in the The Complete Faraway Tree Adventures 10 Stories Collection has been wonderfully illustrated by Georgina Hargreaves, making these a delight to read from start to finish. The paperback set is perfectly packaged in a hard case so you can guarantee these books will take prime position on any bookshelf. Each picture provides colourful details of the characters, different lands and everything in between that readers need to see, which helps to bring each book to life in these full-colour short stories. Perfect as a gift, or to relieve your own childhood.
