Enid takes her place alongside Roald Dahl, Beatrix Potter, and A. A. Milne as one of Britain's true heritage children's authors. "Her books were terrific page-turners in the way no others were".

My son who is 11 was not an avid reader until I introduced him to the Faraway tree. He won't put the book down for one minute, every spare moment he has you will find him with his nose buried in a book. In today's age of technology I am please to see that the imagination is still alive and well.
