This has been my all-time favourite since I was very young! I love the magical adventure that goes beyond my imagination. However, this book was not like the original book I read decades ago. The reason being, I remember very well the names of the 3 children to be Bessie, Jo and Fanny......the names of the children in this book are Frannie, Joe and Beth. Otherwise, the storyline is still the same. If you are truly a Magic Faraway Tree fanatic, you might want to get the authentic ones with the names right. If you have never read this book before, it is worth getting one!
