About this deal

Further up they meet the little elf known as Silky and Dick thinks she is the loveliest creature he has ever seen. Cover with a clean tea towel and let it sit for about an hour in a warm spot - it should double in size. Spoon the glaze over the tops of the buns and either allow to sit and harden or eat them fresh and sticky. Next day they are off to the Enchanted Wood and Dick hears the leaves on the trees making a soft sound in the breeze — "Wisha, Wisha, Wisha! While I am aiming to have a Famous Five style picnic soon (I am confident in my ability to provide lashings of homemade gingerbeer), the first few recipes I wanted to tackle came from possibly the most famous of Enid Blyton’s books - The Faraway Tree.

It's a table soaring skyward with the children squeezed on it followed by a bench bearing Moon-Face, Silky and Saucepan and if you don't believe a situation like this could take place just take a look at the Dorothy Wheeler picture.The tree is so tall that its topmost branches reach into the clouds and it is wide enough to contain small houses carved into its trunk. Over the years, the Faraway Tree stories have been illustrated by various artists including Dorothy M. Due to his lack of knowledge regarding the Faraway Tree, Dick has some more wetness added to his clothing because there happens to be a washer-woman further up who uses a considerable amount of water in her trade although the book doesn't tell us how it is piped up to her place of residence. He is the owner of the slippery-slip, a slide which starts in the middle of his house which lets you slide down to the bottom of the Faraway Tree instead of climbing down.

They go to the wood to meet Jo, Bessie and Fanny and meet some of the wood's residents, including Silky and Moon Face. They befriend many of the residents and have adventures in magical lands that visit the top of the tree. Line a tin with baking paper and allow it to hang over the sides - this will allow you to pull the buns out easily after baking.That’s it - sherbet is so easy to make and I’m only now feeling anger at all the packs of Whiz Fizz I bought as a small child. Yes, the magical lands are enticing and varied and here's a few more to whet the appetite — the Land of Do-What-You-Please, the Land of Goodies and the Land of Tempers. The first title of the main trilogy, The Enchanted Wood, was published in 1939, although the Faraway Tree and Moon-Face had already made a brief appearance in 1936 in The Yellow Fairy Book. Produced originally in 1943, this title is a popular one and was described very aptly by a fan as "One of Enid Blyton's most enchanting tales. At first, Connie refuses to believe in the Faraway Tree or the magical folk who live in it, even when the Angry Pixie throws ink at her and when Dame Washalot soaks her.

As touched upon, quite a few of the funny situations in the Faraway Tree stories are caused by Saucepan's minimal hearing ability and, added to other peculiar happenings, there is an endless supply of material to stimulate the reader's interest. The titles in the series are The Enchanted Wood (1939), The Magic Faraway Tree (1943), The Folk of the Faraway Tree (1946) and Up the Faraway Tree (1951).The perfect introduction to the enchanted world of the Magic Faraway Tree for the youngest children.

They discover that it is inhabited by magical people, including Moon-Face, Silky, The Saucepan Man, Dame Washalot, Mr. When a land is due to leave its position over the tree and head for faraway places a cold wind begins to blow. Such exciting adventures are experienced that the children deliberately stay away from the tree every now and again just to get over them but eventually they're off again for more thrills. For instance, when the tree is taken over by Goblins in The Enchanted Wood, the Goblins were originally fought off, with descriptions of Mr. When the buns have cooled, use the end of a spoon or even a chopstick to make a small insertion on the side, enough to press one of the sherbet filled apricots through, repeat until all buns have a surprise inside.

It could be done without, you would just have to use your hands to work and knead the dough instead. Here are a few instances that feature in this particular book: Saucepan's nose grows as long as Pinocchio's. He experiences much the same as the children did when they first climbed up and he gets the same treatment as Bessie from the first book did when she peeped in at one of the windows set in the tree-trunk. Jo is helped with his problem when the Land of Spells hovers over the tree but another situation arises and this time it's because of the Saucepan Man's carelessness. The supporting character Dame Slap has also become Dame Snap, and no longer practises corporal punishment but instead reprimands her students by shouting at them.
