'What a strange noise the leaves of the tree make', (Rick) said.
'It's as if they were talking to one another - telling secrets'.
'They are telling secrets', said Beth.
'And do you know Rick - if the trees have any message for us,
we can hear it by pressing our left ears to the trunks
of the trees!
Then we really hear what they say'.
~ The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton (1943 - this edition printed 2007) ~
What was your favourite book when you were younger? I was absolutely OBSESSED with The Faraway Tree series by Enid Blyton - the characters, the magic and mystery, the ability of the books to ignite my young imagination and make me believe that anything was possible.
I can still see the images in my mind of the ladder reaching the clouds and all the quirky inhabitants that lived there!
Thank you so much for being here! This is my little 'book blog' where I write about what I'm currently reading, or what books I'm surrounding myself with.
