What a rubbish idea to change the names!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Magic Faraway Tree (Paperback)
Bought this to read with my 5 year old daughter. Found all the names changed. Joe Beth and Frannie indeed. My daughter wouldn't accept the new names, and why should she. I ended up taking the book back. Don't buy this PC rubbish, buy a copy of the 1992 mammoth edition instead.

Ditto, thanks for the warning. Will trawl the 2nd hand bookshops for an older copy. Would imagine Dick of the Famous Five has been renamed as well, possibly George is now a transexual?
