Silghtly dated, not very PC, but still an excellent book.
on 29 March 2006
Bought this for my Daughter who's nearly 5 and am reading her 1 or 2 chapters every bedtime. The main reason I chose this was to try her on a proper full length book instead of having to read the same stories over and over again and this turned out to be an excellent choice.
It's a story of 2 children, Mollie and Peter, who come by a magic flying chair that takes them on various adventures, meeting wizards, goblins, pixies e.t.c. Each chapter is nice and short consisting of about 5-6 pages and one or two illustrations. At the beginning of the book each single chapter is like a short story containing an entire adverture, then throughout the book the stories become more involved with adventures stretching over several chapters.
This is quite an old book and therefore seems a bit dated in places. It's still a good simple story that's easy and ennjoyable for a young child to follow. Would say this is suitable for children aged around 5 and up. Definitely recommended.
