Publisher's Summary

Joe, Beth, and Frannie have a visit from Connie, who just cannot believe in the Faraway Tree and the magical people who live there - Moon-Face, Silky the Fairy, and the Saucepan Man. Together the children climb the tree and meet the magical friends, and visit the mysterious Land of Secrets, the Land of Giants, the Land of Tea Parties, and the Land of Enchantments. After a few marvellous adventures, Connie is enthralled by the Faraway Tree and the folk who inhabit it.

Kate Winslet does this classic justice

Children having wonderful adventures in fantastic lands with some good lessons about manners and respect embedded in the stories.

Huge faraway tree fans devastated

We love the fare away tree but Kate Winslet sort of let down the character performance in our opinion we have read the magic faraway tree many many times and have loved it but in this recording it made some of the characters sound not as fun a magical as I would have like

Sincerely Will Anthony lover of the faraway tree and the titanic

4 year old girl fixated for HOURS!

My daughter has just turned 4, and can I get enough of these. Kate Winslett is absolutely incredible as a narrator- perfect pace and voices for all the characters. Now that she’s not napping, I’m able to still get a couple of hours each day as she sits and draws while listening to these!

Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much adventure, packed full of action so interesting! You just can’t stop listening; the characters are unusual and there’s so many twists and turns you’d never expect! The voices are amazing, and it makes you feel like you’re right there seeing it all happening!
