I was pondering around the library the other day feeling rather festive and found myself reading the blurb of The New Adventures of the Wishing-chair, Winter Wonderland. It took me back to when I was little and loved reading the The Magic Far Away Tree by the same author. I used to LOVE that book, so I thought that I’d give this rather tiny book a whirl to take me back to my childhood. With large text and some lovely illustrations, I sped through the Christmassy book quickly, enjoying the small insight into the imaginary Blyton world.
After reading this, I think that at some point soon I will borrow The Magic Faraway books from the library and really take me back to where my love of books first started. Nostalgic stuff!
This book would be great for someone who finds reading a challenge and wants a quick journey to Santa’s Christmas Workshop!
