Title: Up the Faraway Tree
Author: Enid Blyton
Page Count/Review Word Count: 95
This is the final chapter of the Faraway Tree series, a beautifully illustrated collection of eight short stories about Jo, Bessie and Fanny and their adventures up the Faraway Tree. In a weird crossover, they’re joined by Robin and Joy, two children who have read about the Faraway Tree in The Enchanted Wood, the first book in the series.
The well-crafted illustrations bring the characters to life superbly despite the occasional racism.
