Read & download ☆ The Enchanted Wood Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Jo Bessie and Fanny move to the country and find an Enchanted Wood right on their doorstep In the magic Faraway Tree live the magical characte The first thing to note about the Faraway Tree is that it s not far away at all it s actually very close to where our heroes live If it wasn t a tree the whole thing would be a lie They often harp on about how lucky they are that the Enchanted Wood starts across the lane from their houseThe second thing to note is that if you read this book as a child then all four children in the modern edition will have changed their namesDick and Fanny are now Rick and FrannyJo is Joe And Bessie is BethDid they change Jo and Bessie so it wasn t so obvious why they changed Dick and Fanny Who knowsAdditionally Dame Slap is now Dame Snap and disciplines the children in her school by scolding them rather than slapping them If you pay attention reading this book published 1939 you will see a good number of ideas re used later by authors such as Roald Dahl and JK Rowling Whether Enid Blyton was copying them in turn from some earlier writer I can t say Suffice it to say that things like Bertie Bott s Every Flavour Beans and Willy Wonker s whole meal in a single strip of chewing gum may well have their root in the Faraway Tree s rootsIt s an odd book The children have a deeply unconvincing home life and never appear to go to school Their parents hardly ever let them have five minutes free of chores but when they do they re happy to let the kids as young as 7 stay out to midnight in the woods in the company of old men they haven t metThe mechanics of the Faraway Tree are a mystery It seems incredibly easy to climb and in all the rushing about nobody every seems in danger of falling off The branches appear to be twenty feet wide and flat There s a ladder up into the clouds at the top of it and this leads to ever changing magic lands that swing into position one after the nextThe tree is populated by a good number of folk though only a few are ever named There appears to be no water supply or sanitation and yet Dame Washalot is endlessly tipping dirty water down the tree Being soaked by this water offers endless amusement to all but the soakeeAnother repeated again and again and again and again gag is where the Old Saucepan Man miss hears every second thing said to him Can I have that A rat you say Where I don t see a rat And on it goes How we laughed The mechanics are further stressed in the final chapter where a pony comes down the ladderAnyway I was reading it a second time to my daughter Celyn without snarky commentary a great effort I can tell you The excitement comes from the adventures in the magic lands and the short chapters offer a great number of them including the land of ice and snow the land of toys the land of take what you want the land of birthdays the rocking land not music related and the land of the red goblins It s all imaginative wish fulfillment stuff and Celyn liked it very muchWhile I m wondering why in the land of take what you want they took 7 chickens for their financially struggling mother rather than the gold ingots lying around Celyn is enjoying the description of the chickens antics So it s all good There s no over arching plot just a series of chapters that or less stand alone You can dip into it skip ahead go away and come back in a year makes no differenceHave fun Interesting to note that this review is actually a highly effective stupid magnet You wouldn t believe the earnest scolding comments I ve deleted Hilarious Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes
