A little later in the day than planned, but it’s still Monday at least.
February round up
Letters to Enid 19
The Magic Faraway Tree is getting a new installment next month, written by Jeanne Willis. It is called The Magic Faraway Tree: Silky’s Story. I didn’t recognise the name at first but Jean Willis is the author of the Doctor Xargle books which I absolutely love, and The Diary of the Naughtiest Girl which looks positively awful.
Anyway. The Amazon description reads:
The perfect introduction to the wonderful world of the Faraway Tree. Discover the magic! Explore the Enchanted Wood with Joe, Beth and Frannie and meet their very special friends, Silky the fairy, Moonface and Saucepan Man. When a runaway elephant visits the tree, there’s a lot of mess for the friends to sort out . . .
Which doesn’t exactly match the title. It is aimed at 3-6 year olds so younger than the main Faraway Tree books. I will reserve judgement until I’ve managed to have a look inside.
