9781405278638: The Adventures of the Wishing-Chair - Full-Colour Deluxe Hardback Edition

A beautiful gift edition of the first story in the magical Wishing Chair trilogy from one of the world's most loved and bestselling authors, Enid Blyton. Illustrated by award-winning illustrator and Guardian cartoonist, Joe Berger. When Mollie and Peter go to buy their mother a birthday present, they discover the most extraordinary thing: a chair that can fly and grant wishes! The Wishing-Chair takes them on some marvellous adventures - to a castle where they narrowly escape from a giant and rescue a pixie, to the Land of Dreams, and to a disappearing island! Short chapters and beautiful illustrations make the Magic Wishing Chair perfect bedtime reading for children aged five and upwards. A richly nostalgic gift for grandparents and parents to share with the next generation of Blyton fans. Enid Blyton is arguably the most famous children's author of all time, thanks to series such as The Wishing-Chair, The Faraway Tree-, The Mysteries, The Famous Five and The Secret Seven. Her fantasy books, including The Adventures of the Wishing-Chair, are among her most popular creations and they promise to enchant boys and girls for generations to come. 'Her books were terrific page-turners in the way no others were' - Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse.
