The Wishing Chair Collection by Enid Blyton

The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton is my favourite childhood book of all time. I believe I was 8 or 9 when I got it for Christmas and I couldn’t put it down.
There is something about Enid Blyton’s books that turn me back into a kid. The adventures she used to write about were were just amazing and took you on a journey far, far away. I still have my own copy today.
The Wishing Chair tells us of the story of brother and sister Peter and Mollie, who are out looking for a birthday present one day and come across a strange little shop. In this shop they find the magical Wishing Chair which ends up taking them on adventures with their pixie friend. They meet many witches, goblins and wizards amongst other creatures along the way.
This beautiful hardback edition  contains 3 storybooks in 1. They are:
  • Adventures of the Wishing Chair
  • The Wishing Chair Again
  • More Wishing Chair Stories
It is over 500 pages long and will keep any child occupied for a good few hours.

 Thanks for stopping by today.

    I can't really remember, I know I liked Sweet Valley Twins from quite a young age. Also enjoyed Goodnight Mr Tom, although skim read it recently and found it awfully depressing! I enjoyed the Point Horror books too. Judy Blume etc

    I loved the Faraway Tree and everything by Enid Blyton (my mum put a ban on reading Naughty Amelia Jane because apparently I became more naughty after reading it) Sophie's Snail series by Dick King Smith were my absolute favs though

    This is hard as I was and still am a complete bookworm, however it may have been for a time the Narnia collection, and I remember The Voyage of the Dawn Treader made an enormous impact on me, blew me away.

    The Wishing Chair was my favourite book when I was a child. I would be great to win it so my daughter could enjoy it hopefully as much as I did.

    The Narnia books. The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe was my favourite 🙂

    I have loads but I loved 'Five Children and It' by E. Nesbit. It was lovely to read.

    My own favourite was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, in fact all of the Narnia books. But I have very fond memories of the Wishing Chair books as they were my own daughters' favourites, and now my oldest granddaughter has just discovered the Faraway Tree stories – it would be lovely to give her the Wishing Chair stories to go with them.
