About the book: 
The final book in the extraordinary Faraway Tree series, published as a stand-alone edition for the first time in more than three decades! One day, Robin and Joy read about the Magic Faraway Tree in a book and decide to go meet Joe, Beth and Frannie themselves. The five children have all sorts of exciting adventures together, including being captured by the Enchanter Red-Cloak in the Land of Castles, a birthday treat for Joy in the Land of Wishes, and a delicious visit to the Land of Cakes! The Faraway Tree stories have been delighting readers for over 75 years. Have you collected all the titles in the Magic Faraway Tree series? Look out for The Enchanted Wood, The Faraway Tree, Folk of the Faraway Tree, and Up the Faraway Tree. Also available in beautiful deluxe editions. Also look out for the Blyton Colour Reads series. Chock full of vibrant colour illustrations from Alex Paterson, these are the perfect way to introduce the Faraway Tree adventures to children ages five and up. Short chapters and beautiful illustrations make The Faraway Tree perfect bedtime reading for children aged six and upwards. A richly nostalgic offering for grandparents and parents to share with the next generation of Blyton fans. Enid Blyton is arguably the most famous children's author of all time, thanks to series such as The Wishing-Chair, The Faraway Tree-, The Mysteries, The Famous Five and The Secret Seven. Enid takes her place alongside Roald Dahl, Beatrix Potter, and A. A. Milne as one of Britain's true heritage children's authors. 'Her books were terrific page-turners in the way no others were' - Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse.
