Kids’ Club Review by Charlie: The magic faraway tree

The magic faraway treeThe magic faraway tree, by Enid Blyton

I thought it was really funny because he is kind of deaf eg. is someone said to him “have a plum” he will say “oh have you hurt your thumb” in the book what happens is they are sad because they have to move house but ten they find that they love the new house and the wood behind it… I would recommend it for ages 5 plus because it isn”t scary at all it’s really exciting
