About the book: 

This is the perfect gift for Blyton fans and new readers! It is a classic short tale from Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree series, with fun and stunning new full-colour illustrations from Alex Paterson.

Beth, Joe, Frannie and Rick thought they had quite enough of adventures, but soon go up the Faraway Tree again and find themselves in the Land of Dreams.

The dastardly Sandman makes them fall asleep and Silky has to find a way to get them home in one piece! Along the way, they encounter muffins that turn into kittens, a bus that turns into a plane and a boat, and lots more...

The Magical Faraway Tree series has been entertaining readers for more than 75 years. Now these colour short stories offer a great way for a whole host of young new readers to discover the adventures of Silky, Moon-Face, the Saucepan Man and all of their friends in the Enchanted Wood.
