About this deal

Review by Terry Gustafson Brief Summary by Robert Houghton: Cousin Dick comes to stay with Jo, Bessie and Fanny and together they share many more wonderful adventures up the Faraway Tree.

When the children first meet Silky, she is described as an elf: ″At that moment the yellow door opened and a small elf looked out. 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. 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.Roll each piece into a ball and place them together in the pan, they should be somewhat tight and touching. There follows a big hunt and to make matters worse there is an invasion of the Tree by people from a rather horrible land which is visiting. The tree also grows different types of fruit on its branches so there is plenty of sustenance for the tired climber who needs to keep on going up and up and up to reach the current land at the top. Now the scene is set for the children to do what the Faraway Tree books are all about — visiting one land after another and experiencing adventures. I generally kind of tweak the recipe each time I make it by adding different things so the recipe below will be similar but not identical to theirs.

Dame Washalot of whom we don't hear about all that much, loses her temper in one chapter and displays quite alarming strength by throwing the children, Moon-Face and the Saucepan Man up into one of the strange lands. Wheeler was the faithful soul who originally illustrated these books and she is a very well regarded Enid Blyton artist.

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.

Voices: Roy Hudd, Richard Pearce, Kate Harbour, John Baddeley, Jimmy Hibbert, Janet James and David Holt.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. I found I had to manually work the sultanas through at this stage to ensure they would be properly distributed. There is also a visit to The Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe and you can imagine how uncomfortable that could turn out to be, and — "Is it a bird? Over the years, the Faraway Tree stories have been illustrated by various artists including Dorothy M. Connie, a spoilt and stuck-up girl, comes to stay for the summer with the three children while her mother is sick.
