The Magic Faraway Tree

and

Blyton’s Top short stories

DAI! BOB! TANG! DOON! JOLL! RAFE! HAL!

Morgan shouting for his seven dogs at the end of Five Get Into a Fix is one of my favourite moments. The baddies sneer, as the dogs are a long way away and they refuse to believe that Morgan can call them from underground, but they underestimate the power of his enormous voice.

The Land of Take What You Want which appears at the top of the Faraway Tree would be a marvellous place to visit. In need of a new dining table? No problem. Run out of flour? Just wish for it. Fancy keeping a goat? Just lead it home. Whatever you want or need, all you have to do is think of it and poof, it’s yours.

    Morgan’s rallying cry to his loyal canine army is inspiring. I love the Welsh winter descriptions in Fix.
