By Enid Blyton
Illustrated by Mark Beech
Is there anything better than an Enid Blyton book? The answer to that is only when it is a superb new gift book of excerpts and stories especially selected by some of our favourite authors – including our very own Andy Griffiths!
Just in time for Christmas this is an absolutely beautiful book richly illustrated and with each piece lovingly introduced by its celebrity selector including such notables as Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, Danny Baker and Holly Smale.
With selections from The Secret Seven, Famous Five, Magic Faraway Tree, Wishing Chair, the Naughtiest Girl and many more there is something to appeal to all Enid Blyton fans. For children who are just starting out on their EB journey this would be a fabulous introduction to help them choose the start of their exciting explorations into the many worlds created by this remarkable woman.
For those of us who grew up on a staple diet of Enid it’s a wonder chance to re-visit some old favourites including some we may have forgotten in the mists of time.
Whether the reader will curl up and read independently or randomly dip into it for a cosy read-aloud there will be plenty of takers for this one.
Highly recommended for readers from seven years upwards and for loving parents or grandparents to share with their favourite little people.
