Picking up where the hugely successful Faraway Tree series left off, the inhabitants of the Enchanted Wood face the biggest threat to their existence yet - the death of the Faraway tree! Magical, mystical and completely loveable, the Enchanted World series follows the adventures of five fairies brought together to save the Faraway tree by regaining the lost Talismans that provide the life force of the tree. Silky and the Rainbow Feather : In the first adventure of the series Silky the fairy must recruit her friends and scour her homeland - the Land of Fairies - in order to retrieve the magical rainbow feather. But can Silky, Melody, Petal, Pinx and Bizzy get to the Talisman before the evil troll Talon can get his hands on it? If not the magical faraway tree will die and the connection with the enchanted world will be lost forever.

About the Author

Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton is one of the most-loved authors in children’s publishing. With over 700 titles published, Enid Blyton’s stories remain timeless classics, adored by children throughout the world.

Soon after Enid Blyton was born in 1897, she fell gravely ill with whooping cough. Her father, Thomas Blyton stayed up with her night after night until her cough subsided and she recovered. From that time on, Enid followed her father wherever he went, and it was through her father that she developed a love of nature and animals – an enthusiasm which stayed with her throughout her life. It was also her father who instilled in Enid her love of books, and she would often be seen sneaking into her father’s library and borrowing a pile of books.

As a young woman Enid was faced with many choices; her father had planned a career in music for her, while she felt drawn to writing. In the end, she became a teacher, though her passion for writing never dwindled. In 1922, a collection of poems by Enid was published - it was her first step toward her dream of becoming an author.

At 27 years old, Enid married Hugh Pollock and moved to London. Enid had two children with Hugh, and soon after wrote her first novel, The Adventures of the Wishing Chair. Enid divorced Hugh after almost 20 years of marriage, and remarried Kenneth Waters in 1943.

Throughout the 40 and 50s, Enid wrote books at a colossal pace: adventure stories, mysteries, magical stories, farming stories, stories for younger children, best-selling series like The Famous Five and Noddy…her writing knew no bounds!

Apart from breaks to play golf and spend time with her children, Enid’s working week was consumed with writing new stories, correcting proofs and answering the hundreds of letters she was, by now, receiving weekly. She explained that her characters evolved organically and her stories seemed to naturally form, she described herself as “merely a sightseer, a reporter, and interpreter.”

Enid fell ill with Alzheimer’s disease in her old age (a disease that affects people’s memory) and she died in 1963. Her spirit lives on in her books and she is remembered as one of the most-loved and celebrated children’s authors.
