  1. A good book for more imaginative children when compared to a lot of the horror-based titles, The Folk of the Faraway Tree is a fun read even now. The repetition of content from the previous Flips release is disappointing however, so be warned if you're planning to buy both titles.

    It's five dollars for an outdated fantasy story from a British author that few Americans have heard of once again with The Magic Faraway Tree, and we're back to playing the waiting game to see if EA ever really gets this e-book franchise moving forward, consistently.
