By Enid Blyton, illustrated by Jan McCafferty, published by Egmont, RRP £5.99
What’s the story: When Joe, Beth and Frannie take their cousin Rick on an adventure, they make sure it’s one he never forgets! They climb to the top of a magical tree and visit countless worlds. They have to escape from the Land of Dreams, things go wrong for them in the Land of Topsy-Turvy, and they find out who drives a runaway train in the Land of Do-As-You-Please.
Why we love it: you’ll revel in the pleasure of introducing this magical world and the memorable characters of Moonface, Saucepan Man and Silky the Fairy as well as savour the thoughts of ‘toffee shocks’ and ‘pop biscuits’.
