Yes some of the writing does seem old fashioned or out of date but they still capture a childs imagination and encourage it. We now a faraway tree in our town according to my child and she loves drawing pictures of Joe, Beth and Frannie.
At bedtime she gets the book and likes to hear of the adventures with Moonface, Silky and Saucepan Man and we have to read at least a chapter.
Would definetely recommend. Our family have all read them from my dad at school in the 50s to me in the 70s my sister in the 80s my neice in the 00s and now my daughter at 3. I am sure she will enjoy reading them herself when she is older.
I am so pleased to report that this edition has the original names; Jo, Bessie, Fanny and Dick. I read this magical story as a child and it has stayed with me for years. The illustrations are by Georgina Hargreaves and are exquisite, they really enhance and work with the story to create the most idyllic bed time story. So pleased with my purchase- thanks to the seller and Amazon.
The names of the characters have been changed and many of the funny bits have been edited out.
What's happening to the world!!?? I was shocked at how much has been RE-WRITTEN!!?
It's a real shame so much of the actual magic has been destroyed by politically correct editing.
And the illustrations are very lame.
Nothing like the original Enid Blyton version I knew and loved.
How Queer said Fanny - lol
