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
Yes some of the writing does seem old fashioned or out of date but they still capture a childs imagination and encourage it.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.
The original series is fantastic- I can still conjur up images of Moonface, Silky and the Saucepan Man as I believe them to look, and it ain't how they appear in this book!
Not impressed at all, it's an insult to Enid's memory
