Loved, loved, loved this series as a child and oh so wanted to find that magic tree to climb into a magical world, make new friends, and eat strange melt in your mouth popping candy to odd treacle puddings! A veritable feast for the enchanted, magical- thinking mind of a grade schooler!

The book is such a pleasing read! It's really cute and I love the names given to the characters most of all! It's one of those books that has to be read atleast once in a lifetime, if not more!

This is the final chapter of the Faraway Tree series, a beautifully illustrated collection of eight short stories about Jo, Bessie and Fanny and their adventures up the Faraway Tree. In a weird crossover, they're joined by Robin and Joy, two children who have read about the Faraway Tree in The Enchanted Wood, the first book in the series.

The well-crafted illustrations bring the characters to life superbly despite the occasional racism.
