    Any additional comments?

    These books were my favourite when I was a child and I've loved listening to them all over again as brought to life by Kate Winslet. My children also love them and roared laughing particularly at the deaf old Saucepan Man and we've been on several very long journeys without the usual squabbles and mithering. Highly recommend.

    "Enthralling for my 6 year old"

    Very good and lovely. I like all the faraway tree books.
    - Jack, aged 6

    A book he preferred to watching TV. We often heard squeals of excitement as he listened. Kate Winslet's narration was excellent.

    "Perfect for the car"

    The kids loved it, and husband and I had forgotten how trippy some of the stories are. Good wholesome fun, and Kate Winslet is a lovely narrator, it certainly helped along some very long car journeys.

    Story
    "Brought back child hood memories"
    Would you listen to The Folk of the Faraway Tree again? Why?

    yes with my granddaughter, it brought back child hood memories of long nights reading the whole set of books. My granddaughter is only 3 so enjoyed listening to the story whilst playing with her dolls house.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    moon face and pop biscuit's, was always my favourite as a child


    What does Kate Winslet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    This bit I found a bit hard to get used to as had in my head how the characters sounded


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    laugh


    Any additional comments?

    I'm happy to have these downloaded so I can keep for my future grandchildren to listen to and can be listened to again and again especially when nanny is tired

    "Excellent book for kids, and adults will enjoy it"
    What did you like most about The Folk of the Faraway Tree?

    It's the next book after the enchanted wood. Wonderful fantasy lands and great characters.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Winslet’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Kate Winslet is a fabulous narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I read Enid Blyton as a child, I'm so pleased to be revisiting this with my children. They love her stories just as much as I do.
