    Have you read the magic tree by Enid Blyton?

    Hello!
    I want to know if you have read ``The Magic Tree创 `` The chair of the desires 创 and `` Amelia Jane's adventures 创 by Enid Blyton.

    I don磘 know if the titles are correct because I have the books in Spanish and the titles are: El 羠bol M醙ico, Aventuras de la silla de los deseos y Aventuras de Amelia Jane.

    The Magic tree is about four children that live in the city. One day, the move to a house in the forest. There is an enormous tree. The children (two boys and two girls) meet very extravagant persons (Seditas, Cara de Luna, Cacharros...

    The chair of the desires磗 adventures is about two children (a boy and a girl: Peter and Molly) that go to a shop to buy a present for her mother. There, they find the chair and live very adventures.

    Amelia Jane磗 adventures is about a doll that live in a house with others toys.

    Yes, I liked it too but I think in the end it had got a little bit boring. But no, I have not read The Magic Tree but it has been recommended to me...

    Oh I loved it too. Sea of Adventure and Mountain of Adventure have been two of my most favourite books coming from Blyton!
