I loved this book when I was a child - and also its sequel, "The children of Willow Farm". Tannylan is a great character.

Like a lot of Enid Blyton's books it gives a good basic education in natural history but in such a way that you do not realise.

Its a gentle book that should be part of every child's reading.

What a funny old world children used to live in. I read this as a small child, and it stuck in my head over all these years and when I saw it recently it seemed like time to reread it. It doesn't really stand up to analysis these days - the painful levels of sexism for one thing would make me not want to give it to my daughters without explaining that in the old days girls were considered weak and feeble, for example. The psychology of the adults in this is what is known as authoritarian. They dispense commands from afar, which must be obeyed regardless of logic, else there is punishment. Children raised like this become punitive, seeing weakness or vulnerability as the fault of those in which these things manifest; they become petty fascists and bullies and in general the foot soldiers of Empire. But we all knew that about Blyton, the child-hating old bigot. What I was interested in here is not the parents, who disappear for months on end without explanation, nor the kindly aunt and uncle who take them in and use them as unpaid labour and let them use their free time hanging out with a tramp in the woods (who is known for his acts of violence against children); but said tramp, the misunderstood Tammylan. I get Tammylan. I'd live in the woods and be friends with the animals as well, except for the threat of being bothered by annoying posh London children all day. Tammylan can I touch a toad? Tammylan whats a bat? Tammylan can I sleep in your bed? Poor old boy never gets any respite. He does his best. It turns out that his reputation for violence is unfair - he only hurts children who hurt animals. He hates when children hurt animals, but doesn't seem too bothered by adults doing it. He hasn't a bad word for Uncle Tim's involvement in the industrial meat industry.Read more ›

My son in Australia asked if I still had his favourite childhood book "The Children of Cherry Tree Farm" in the attic as he wanted to read it to his son. Sadly it had long gone but I found that I could buy a copy through Amazon. It is now in Western Australia giving pleasure to my son Peter and grandson Joshua.

My daughter loved this book which i knew she would as i loved reading it when i was a similar age (8yrs).
She's now desperate to get the sequel 'Children of Willow Farm.'

Only downside was that there was writing on inside cover which the seller had not mentioned in advert. Didn't affect the story though.
