First Loves: Books by Enid Blyton

The Enid Blyton books – particularly the Faraway Tree and Wishing Chair series – were the first books I fell asleep with.  I’d hide the book under my pillow while I did my homework in bed, sneaking them out every so often for quick read.

These books fired my imagination. Every tree that I climbed, I wished was the Faraway Tree with Saucepan Man hiding amidst the branches.  Every chair I sat on, I hoped would sprout wings and carry me away.

I probably had all if not most of the titles which I lovingly wrapped with clear plastic eventhough they were hardback copies.

    • You’ve not met anyone else that’s read the Magic Faraway Tree??? Whoa, they’re all missing out on a fun read, yes? 🙂


    • Trisha – I don’t know if you’d find the same kind of enjoyment in the enid blyton books as an adult compared to when you were a child and the whole world was a huge and mysterious place 🙂


    • Thanks for dropping by Heather. The Enid Blyton books are a wonderful read for children (and the occasional grown-up who wants to reminisce :))
