Publisher's Summary

Set off a magical adventure with the first book in Enid Blyton's classic fantasy series about a chair that can fly and grant wishes! Perfect for children aged 5 and up. When Mollie and Peter go to buy their mother a birthday present, they discover the most extraordinary thing: a magical wishing-chair! The Wishing-Chair takes them on some wonderful adventures - to a giant's castle to rescue a new pixie friend, to the Land of Dreams, and even to a disappearing island! Who knows what might happen next? First published in 1937, this recording is based on the classic text, except that the pixie character's name has been changed to Binky.

Scariest stories ever

We couldn’t get past the first chapter with my 5 year old. And honestly I was really scared myself listening to it.

One of our favorites

We love this book. The narrator is so pleasant to listen to and she has a lovely range of voices for the different characters. Great for children from 3 years.
