A brand new full-colour short story from Blyton's magical Wishing-Chair series - the perfect companion to the successful Magic Faraway Tree Adventure series and perfect for readers of 5+ When Mollie and Peter go to buy their mother a birthday present, they discover the most extraordinary thing: a chair that can fly and grant wishes! And on a stiflingly hot summer day in the playroom, what better adventure to have than to fly high above the mountains and seaside in search of the Land of Goodness Knows Where! Short chapters and beautiful full-colour illustrations from Alex Paterson make the Wishing-Chair Adventures series perfect bedtime reading for children aged five and upwards. A richly nostalgic offering for grandparents and parents to share with the next generation of Blyton fans.
