Great value for money! -

My mum read these to me as a child and I loved the stories. The audiobooks have really brought these stories to life in a world where stories today are competing with fast paced entertainment on the TV.

My 7-year-old son particularly loves it and loves to talk about what the characters look like. Moon Face is a family favourite.

Kate Winslet is both engaging and soothing so perfect for bed time listening. Would recommend to all who want to go back to the Faraway tree and to those who want to discover a classic story brought to life for a 'can't go wrong' price.

Doesn't match books -

This is a lovely set and they have seen sense and included all three books into the collection but the discs don't follow the books; The Magic Faraway tree misses a couple of chapters out. My son likes to listen and follow the book, great, until the CD finishes.

Why have two versions of book and CD? Disappointing.

Thanks for the review

Thank you for your review. We have queried the issues you raised with the publisher and the following is their response:

'This audio recording of The Enchanted Wood does not contain chapters 22-25, which do appear in the current hardback edition (Egmont, 2015) but not in the current paperback edition (Egmont, 2014).

These chapters are titled:
Up to the Land of Toys
They Get into Trouble
Mr Oom-Boom-Boom
In Santa Claus's Castle

These chapters were not part of The Enchanted Wood when it was first published (Newnes, 1939). They were first written for Enid Blyton's Omnibus! published in 1952. They were subsequently inserted into later editions of The Enchanted Wood.

The Magic Faraway Tree audio recording is abridged in the following ways:
Chapter 20-21 are merged, and sections about Rick stealing medicine are cut
Chapter 22 cut after mother is better, resumes at end of chapter 26 for last paragraph of book
Chapters 23-26 are cut.

The Folk of the Faraway Tree is unabridged.'
