The Enchanted Wood

Title : The Enchanted Wood

Author : Enid Blyton

Main Characters : Jo, Bessie, Fanny, Moon-Face, Silky, Mr. Whatzisname, Saucepan Man and Mrs. Dame Washlot.

Description of one of the main characters : Mr. Whatzisname does not know what his name is. Hence he is called Mr. Whatzisname. He gets angry if anyone disturbs him while sleeping. But he is a kind man too.

Whom I like and Why : I like Saucepan Man the most as he is funny. He wears a saucepan for a hat and have kettles and pans all over his dress. He sometimes hears everything wrong because of the sound made by his kettles and pans.

Whom I dislike and Why : I dislike Mrs. Dame Washlot as she always pours her soapy water down Jo, Bessie, Fanny and anyone who climbs the faraway tree for the first time.

Setting/Theme of the story : Jo, Bessie and Fanny move to a new house near the enchanted wood. They explore and find the faraway tree. They become friends with Moon-Face and Silky. They go to exciting lands like “The RoundAbout Land”, “The Land of Ice and Snow”, “The Rocking Land” and “The Land of Birthdays”. They have fun. The fantastic adventures with Jo, Bessie, Fanny, Silky, Moon-Face, Mr. Whatzisname and Saucepan Man make the story the Enchanted Wood.

The Part I enjoyed the most :I enjoyed the part when clever Moon-Face captures the red goblins using his slippery slip.

A different ending : The Land of Birthdays moves away from the Faraway tree. Bessie and her friends have not yet started eating the wishing cake. So Bessie, the birthday girl, wishes “The Land of Birthdays” to go to the top of the Faraway tree once again. It goes and everybody thank Bessie. Jo, Bessie and Fanny return home happily. They have had an exciting birthday party.
