Five Books in One: The Enchanted Wood / The Magic Faraway Tree / The Folk of the Faraway Tree / The Wishing Chair Again / Up the Faraway Tree In 1997, stories from the novels were adapted into animated ten-minute episodes for the TV series Enid Blyton's Enchanted Lands. The series, entitled Enchanted Lands: The Magic of the Faraway Tree had 13 episodes:

The lands at the top are sometimes extremely unpleasant – for example, the Land of Dame Slap (altered to Dame Snap in revised editions), an aggressive school teacher; and sometimes fantastically enjoyable - notably the Land of Birthdays, the Land of Goodies, the Land of Take-What-You-Want, and the Land of Do-As-You-Please.Unlike the Famous Five, this will be the first time a film version of the Faraway Tree books will have been made. The project has been taken on by Neal Street Productions, whose previous films include the Oscar-nominated Revolutionary Road as well as the recent stage adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Any issues with the book list you are seeing? Or is there an author or series we don’t have? Let me know!

Bunbury, Stephanie (1 July 2012). "Rewrites a blight on Blyton's legacy ... by golly". The Sydney Morning Herald . Retrieved 14 October 2022. Review by Terry Gustafson Brief Summary by Robert Houghton: Two children, Robin and Joy read a book of exciting stories about Jo, Bessie and Fanny and the wonderful Faraway Tree and determine to go and visit the children from the book and share in their adventures. So off they go and have fun climbing the tree, meeting the people who live there, and visiting magical lands like the Land of Roundabouts and Swings, the Land of Magic, and the Land of Castles as well as having a party in the Land of Cakes! Punny Name: Most of the folks living in the tree; Moon Face has a face shaped like a round moon, Silky has fine silky hair, Mr. Wazitsname doesn't know his true name, and so on. The Saucepan Man mishearing what people say, because he's a little deaf from the clashing of the various pots and pants he keeps strung about his person.Hair-Trigger Temper: The Angry Pixie has one. Also everyone from the Land of Tempers; it's said that if you lose your temper there, then you're forced to live there for the rest of your life (which is the reason the Angry Pixie never went up there himself). The supporting character Dame Slap has also become Dame Snap, and no longer practises corporal punishment but instead reprimands her students by shouting at them. [2] The Voiceless: The third book had Connie losing her voice after trying to eavesdrop in the Land of Secrets. The following adventure have the children trying to find a way to restore her voice in the Land of Enchantments. The Enchanted Wood (1939), The Magic Faraway Tree (1943) and The Folk of the Faraway Tree (1946) are the original Faraway Tree books written by Enid Blyton. In 1952 she altered an earlier book, originally called The Yellow Fairy Book (1936), to make it part of the Faraway Tree world. It is now published as The Magic Faraway Tree: Adventure of the Goblin Dog. The text of all these books was reviewed and minor editorial amendments were made where necessary (to correct errors, and to bring the text in line with our editorial standards as described above) when the books were first published by Hodder Children’s Books in 2020-21.

All across the USA, people are showing up dead. The deaths don't appear to be connected in any way until one particular death occurs and gets the Secretary of Defense's attention. He arranges for a task force to investigate. In July, UK production company, Working Title, acquired the theatrical rights to the whole library of the Famous Five series, spanning more than 20 titles, with the intention of making a live-action film series based around the books. Old Vic Productions have also confirmed they had acquired stage rights to Famous Five and were looking to launch a musical version of the five’s adventures. The books themselves also underwent a “language update” in 2011, to make them more relatable for a new generation of readers. In 2022, we published a brand-new story set in Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree world but written by a different author: the bestselling Jacqueline Wilson. This book was illustrated by Mark Beech. This story, called The Magic Faraway Tree: A New Adventure, sees three contemporary siblings, Milo, Mia and Birdy, encounter the Enchanted Wood, the Faraway Tree and all its wonderful inhabitants and Lands. In 2023, we will publish a second new adventure set in Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree world by Jacqueline Wilson: The Magic Faraway Tree: A Christmas Adventure, also illustrated by Mark Beech. Hair of Gold: Silky's hair is very blond and beautiful, and she's easily the sweetest person in the entire series. This is the final chapter of the Faraway Tree series, a beautifully illustrated collection of eight short stories about Jo, Bessie and Fanny and their adventures up the Faraway Tree. In a weird crossover, they're joined by Robin and Joy, two children who have read about the Faraway Tree in The Enchanted Wood, the first book in the series.Berserk Button: The Angry Pixie hates it when people look in his window when they're climbing up the Faraway Tree. I’ve read all the Faraway Tree books since being little and they are still a firm favourite of mine, I didn’t realise there was a fourth book until I got the set as a gift and I was so excited! Once there were two children called Robin and Joy." This is how the fourth of the Faraway Tree series begins in Sunny Stories of July 23rd, 1948. It was in picture-strip form and there were four panels per issue. Due to the popularity of the previous Faraway Tree tales it was fairly obvious that Up the Faraway Tree might also be welcomed as a dedicated book and this took place in 1951. Because of the format the book might not be classed on par with the first three Faraway Tree volumes but that's purely a matter of how you see it. Robin and Joy initially distance the theme by a factor of one and viewed as a whole it might even be considered as a story within a story. The bonus is that the reader is inundated with a host of the lovely Dorothy Wheeler pictures and who could complain about that?
