The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton

I am totally besotted with anything Enid Blyton. And even within her huge body of works, the Magic Faraway Tree is one of my favorites since this also falls under one of my favorite genres – fantasy. Enchanted Wood is the beginning of the series. For me, fantasy is about the wonder in discovering the new worlds. This being the first book is the one where we discover the Faraway Tree, the folks who live on it and the magic associated with it. Of course, the wonder remains throughout this series because new lands keep coming on top of the Faraway Tree. So throughout the series, there are new lands to discover. That way for a reread, these stories kind of lose their value once you know what land.
