This book was absolutly beautiful.

This amazing book is overflowing with the magic of Enid Blyton. The stories selected from this book were absolutly perfect and the breathtaking illustrations by Mark Beech really enhanced the already amazing stories.

Mark Beech's full colour illustrations perfectly compliment each of the stories in this collection. After finishing this book I went back to the start just to look at the wonderful illustrations.

I loved getting to read the introduction to each of these stories. I really enjoyed getting to see which magical story or amazing adventure had captured the minds of these amazing people. Getting to see how Enid Blyton's stories had affected the lives of others and what they took from her books made from a truly wonderful reading experience.

The layout of this book really drew me into this book and made it hard to put down. It really is utterly superb. The way in which the chapters were grouped together and the colour coded, illustrated borders really captured my attention.

This book can be read from start to finish like I did, or read one story at a time. Making this collection of stories perfect for reading aloud.

Favourite Enid Blyton Stories is the perfect book for all young readers and all readers who are young at heart. It really is a book that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
