Book Review: Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton - Reviewed by ohbukowski (31 Jul 2011)
Enid Blyton's books are a lovely blast from the past. The only things you need to worry about are the occasionally sexist or perhaps racist themes (gollywogs etc) but it's all very innocent and well intentioned. The magic faraway tree stretches into a kind of portal, leading up to far away lands. The portal changes, skipping to new worlds, so visits needs must be short and sweet. Some worlds are delightful, some are scary (a seasickness inducing land where everything rolls and pitches), a land of dreams, wonderful lands filled with toys and presents. Ms Blyton's books shy away from any dark or dreary subject and are quite infantile and simplistic. Never the less, they are super well imagined and very cute! Great for younger readers.
