The Magic Faraway Tree and Up the Faraway Tree, by Enid Blyton
Enid Blyton introduced me to amazing journeys through the pages of a book! I think I’ve read everything she wrote. I am so thankful my mum bought me so many interesting books as a child, which created my thirst for the written word. —Kay Whelan
I have early memories of sitting on my father’s knee being read to. Mostly at that time it was Up the Faraway Tree. We lived in a small village in Kent. The local school had books from the travelling library and we used to go once a week to get new books. In time I was the librarian, at about 13. —Ann Payne
Loved it as a kid! —Julie Annand
