APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Here, we’re treated to a marriage made in audiobook heaven: the timeless magic of Enid Blyton and Kate Winslet’s graceful, soothing narration. The first in The Faraway Tree series that began bewitching children (and, of course, adults) in 1939, it introduces us to Joe, Beth and Frannie who discover and climb the eponymous tree to discover its otherworldly creatures and a ladder that transports them to magical lands. Winslet is on sparkling form, imbuing wide-eyed wonder to Blyton’s exquisite storytelling. This is perfect for bedtime, or any time, really.

Wonderful fairy story enjoyed by children for generations. Excellent narration by Kate Winslet.
MP4 format not MP3
I have been unable to listen to it as it downloaded as a protected MP4 format and it am unable to convert it to MP3. Nowhere in itunes does it inform you of the files type!
Not the classic you remember
Changed names ... really ? Do we live in a world where we have to rewrite classic books for fear our children will hear the name Dame Slapalot and think bad of it ? How awful
