He listens to them, and can understands their problem, but will he be able to help them?

The Treebobs and the Dizzy Broomsticks by Declan Harney

Ever wondered how broomsticks fly – find out in this magical story.

DIZZY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the book:

Mischief and magic abound when the two wicked witches of the magical forest, Badlot Barbara and Rotten Rena, decide to open up their very own broomstick shop in the middle of the forest. Of course witches from miles around pay a visit and cause mayhem while test driving their broomsticks. However, the Treebobs come up with a most cunning plan to put the two wicked witches out of business with quite dizzying results.

 

When the peace of the forest is broken by the sound of tree saws and evil cackling, Treebob Bluebell and two fairies are sent to discover what is happening.

In a clearing, they find Rotten Rena and her cousin Badlot Barbara waving their wands and cackling with laughter as giant saws move through the air cutting down trees and scaring all the tree dwelling animals.

It’s not long before the Treebobs and fairies find out what they are doing, posters start appearing for a broomstick shop. As witches arrive from near and far, and try out broomsticks, the forest dwellers become very unhappy and they form an action committee, but what can it do?

Well, have you ever wondered what magic makes broomsticks fly?  You can discover the secret in this story, and then find out if Rotten Rena and Badlot Barbara’s plans can be thwarted, or is the forest doomed to the sound of witches zooming around, cackling with laughter, as they try out broomsticks?

A brilliantly entertaining story, which is wonderfully narrated by Lindsay Abbott.

About the book:

In this magical story from the ever-popular Treebob series, Rotten Rena, the wicked witch of the enchanted forest, comes up with yet another mad scheme involving one of her very own magical potions. Of course since Rotten Rena isn’t the cleverest of witches it all goes wrong with hilarious results! Of course its up to the Treebobs to rescue her.

 

 

Poor Rotten Rena is not very good at magic, however, when she finds an old book she decides one of the potions will be the perfect way for her to make her fortune.

Potion made, she sets up a stall in the forest, unfortunately, the forest dwellers are frightened of her, and the only person to appear is her cousin, Badlot Barbara, who is also a wicked witch.

Taunted, Rotten Rena takes her own potion, only to discover it was not what she thought it was…

Luckily, good fairy Bindweed Bell has seen it all, and knows Badlot Barbara will be far worse than Rotten Rena for the forest dwellers, so the Treebobs and fairies send out a search party.

They soon find her, but will they be able to help, and if so, how?

This is a wonderful story, the comical wicked witches and clever working together of the inhabitants of the Enchanted Forest are brought magically to life by the narrator Lindsay Abbott.

The Treebobs and the Giant Mole by Declan Harney

Magic and mayhem in the Enchanted Forest.

GIANT MOLE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the book: 

Another fun filled Treebob story straight from the magical forest.

When Rotten Rena a truly wicked witch makes an enemy of Mole Hill Marge she does so at her peril as Marge is famous for being a very stubborn mole indeed. However not even Rotten Rena dares to imagine the lengths that Marge will go to in order to get her own back but Rena soon finds out when Mole Hill Marge becomes Mountain Marge and its down to the Treebobs to save the day.

 

 

One day, the peace of the Enchanted Forest is disturbed by Rotten Rena and Mole Hill Marge arguing, Marge is a large mole, and she’s sitting on top of her hill wearing sunglasses, she loves digging and insists she will dig whenever and wherever she likes, despite threats from Rotten Rena.

Later that day, whilst digging, a happy singing Marge comes across the wicked witch Badlot Barbara’s cottage. Badlot Barbara is not friends with her cousin Rotten Rena, today and so she agrees to help Marge take revenge on Rotten Rena, and gives her a magic potion.

The next day the ground trembles as a gigantic Marge tunnels through the earth. As she causes havoc, it is apparent that something has to be done to stop her, but what?

I love listening to audio books and, even as an adult, I find the adventures of the Treebobs relaxing and entertaining. The magic and characters are delightful and the story is brought alive by the wonderful voices of Lindsay Abbott.

How the Treebobs came to be, a Video Story by Declan Harney

The story of how the Treebobs began is a lovely one and a great introduction to this wonderful series of children’s books about the magical Treebobs.

You can hear it on the  Tales4All website in its ‘Storytime Corner’ http://www.tales4all.co.uk/storytimecorner/ or by clicking the link below.

Through the wonderful voices of the narrator, we discover all about how the Treebobs came to be. We learn that they were elves, who originally lived in a beautiful valley, which had everything they needed, and they were very happy. However, one day a terrible thing happens and before long, they are forced to find another home.

After a long journey, they arrive at a valley with a dense magical forest in it, could this be their new home?

Well, many creatures live in this forest including wicked witches and lovely fairies, as the elves discover. However, luckily, their journey has a happy ending, but what that is, you will just have to listen to find out.

 This video takes me back to special times reading stories with my children. I find myself just wanting to turn back the clock, sit them on my knees, cuddle them and say, “Now, if you’re ready, then the story will begin.”

The Telephone That Talked by Declan Harney

Now for something different!

The Telephone That Talked is one of the stories in a book called The Shop That Sold Wishes and Magic by Declan Harney.

It is featured on the Tales4All website in its ‘Storytime Corner’ http://www.tales4all.co.uk/storytimecorner/


This story is called ‘The Telephone that Talked.’ Now if you are like me, you sometimes find yourselves talking to inanimate objects, especially if they are frustrating you, well this story will make you think because the telephone talks back!

However, I am getting ahead of myself. In a small village there is an antiques shop owned by a lady called Mary. This shop is mysterious because, with every purchase you make, you sometimes get a novelty gift, one you don’t find out about until afterwards.

Living in the same village is Miss Grimshaw, she’s the sort of ‘good soul’ who can always be relied upon to help in an emergency, bake cakes, child mind, and who never chases anyone for payment. Everyone uses her, but no one cares about her, and therefore, she’s so lonely, sometimes she goes shopping just to see somebody…

One day Miss Grimshaw goes into the antiques shop, she cannot remember ever having gone in before, however Mary seems to know her. She persuades her to take an old Candlestick Telephone, and when she asks how much it is, she receives an unusual reply.

Back home, Miss Grimshaw plugs the phone in, however, no one calls, next time she goes out, people give her strange glances, poor Miss Grimshaw cannot understand why.

However, when she finds out she discovers something truly magical has happened and her life is changed forever.

I loved listening to this slightly creepy story, and am intrigued to find out about the others, in this book.

Review by Susan Keefe

One day, the peacefulness of the Enchanted Forest is destroyed by a loud voice from above.

“Good morning,” Rotten Rena cackles from her enormous airship, I’m starting an airship passenger service between the Enchanted Forest and the Dark Wood she announces proudly.

Her airship is so noisy and her plans so damaging to the forest, that the fairies and Treebobs decide they have to do something.

They call a meeting and after Bindweed Belle has explained how an airship works, Treebob, Brenda Breezewater has an idea…

Being evil, and upsetting those around you might seem fun at the time but Rotten Rena’s bad deeds and mischievous ways are about to backfire on her.

Will the Treebobs and fairies succeed?

To find out you must read the book!

Within the story lies an important message for children, which is that thoughtfulness, teamwork and respect for others, conquer over being selfish and inconsiderate.

Another captivating Treebob adventure, which is beautifully illustrated.
