Simply enchanting

What a gem this story is. The whole family loves listening, including daddy. Refreshing to have an imagination spark that works for both boys and girls. Kate is amazing at narrating.

I love this story

I think that they should get five stars all of them because I like how they’ve got a lot about everyone and it’s really good story for bedtime because it’s really exciting and you don’t know which didn’t happen until you read the book or heard the whole bookBut the other reason is because you didn’t have good dreams if you’ve listened to a really exciting book before you’ve gone to bed I mean I would have exciting dreams if I just listen to that storyI think if I was making a story I will drift away into my own world and it would be like I was Flying through the sky And then I met unicorns standing on a rainbow But This story isn’t like that it’s not like the person in the story is telling it but I would do that But this story is exciting that’s why I’ve only done four stars story because it feels a bit funny like imagine you’ve just known someone’s whole life when you weren’t even there just think about that mean that will be a bit weird that’s why I Would pretend that I’m in the story

Cool

I really really like all the lands at the top of the faraway tree, especially the land of treats were you can get anything you like to eat and there's a carousel that has animals that come to life when you ride them and a boating pool where the seagul boat flies.

Perfect for the car

The kids loved it, and husband and I had forgotten how trippy some of the stories are. Good wholesome fun, and Kate Winslet is a lovely narrator, it certainly helped along some very long car journeys.
