The Enchanted Wood - Enid Blyton

The Enchanted Wood is one of Enid Blyton's most memorable and truly imaginative stories, ... more

capturing a world where almost anything can happen
if you just believe in the magic of nature and its
creatures.Many adults will have fond memories of
discovering the world of The Enchanted Wood: from
the delightfully gentle Silky the Fairy, to the
wonderfully bizarre but terminally jolly Moon-Face
who along with a host of strange and mysterious
characters live among the branches of The Magic
Faraway Tree.Kate Winslet, the award-winning
actress, was captivated by the stories at an early
age and during her pregnancy approached the
company who own the rights to the Enid Blyton name
to ask them if they would be interested in having
her record these magical stories on tape. The
result is stunning.Winslet, with her gentle,
singsong voice, captures the pure joy of these
unforgettable stories from the moment the tale
begins, and Joe, Beth and Fanny--the three young
children who move from the city with their family
to the country house surrounded by the Enchanted
Wood--are captured as the wide-eyed and
open-minded children they really are, eager to
become involved in all manner of adventure and
never once questioning that this strange world
they have entered might not be quite, well,
normal.Probably the most memorable and certainly
the most magical Enid Blyton stories of all are
here brought to life with aplomb, with Winslet's
enthusiasm for the tales she tells on this
five-hour collection shining through.This
recording of The Enchanted Wood is set to become a
classic, and would make a fantastic gift for the
young, while providing an enchanting trip down
memory lane for the adult who has never quite let
go of the magic. (Ages 4 and over) --Susan

Hidden Sexual Innuendo? No, Just Fantasies! Review with images

AdvantagesImaginative stories, incredible lands, and heroic characters.

DisadvantagesSlightly dated.

"...Blyton, in my opinion, is the most amazing children’s author of all time. As I look fondly back, I’m sure most will remember the feelings of excitement and exhilaration that swept over us as we sunk deeper and deeper into the fantasy lands Blyton created. Turning the pages as the tension rose, and wondering what would become of the colourful characters she created, our imaginations were captured by her amazing stories of adventure-loving children ..."

"...to really enjoy all of the Enid Blyton books, namely The Famous Five series. But, there was one of her books that was the most creative of them all - well, actually it was a series of books about three children and their adventures up the Faraway Tree. The first book in this series is called The Enchanted Wood, and sets the scene for the books to come. After thinking about The Enchanted Wood, and all of it's follow-ups, for a few days, I pulled ..." Read review

"...some of her characters including The Famous Five, The Secret Seven and more famously Noddy and Big Ears and the other folk of Toyland. This book is a particular favourite of mine - i remember as a 7 year old sitting around the teacher intently listening as everday she read 2-3 pages of this book to us before hometime. I passed my love of it onto my younger sisters and am now reading bits of it to little one who loves it just as much as i did ..." Read review
