Reading a bed time story last night with my child – we were taking turns reading to each other and I started to giggle. Why? ”The Land of Spells”
First the Book is titled “The Magic Faraway Tree Collection” by Enid Blyton Illustrated by Jan McCafferty.
Now this book was a Birthday Gift to my Child and I LOVE IT! Thank You! We are completely entrenched in the journey of the characters. What surprised me is that -the 3 books in this collection were originally published in Great Britain in 1939, 1943 and 1946.
So the “The Land of Spells” – is a large market-place, full of shops and tables with all kinds of mystic creatures famous for their art of magic and spell making.
As I’m reading about these creatures – as good as they are at their art – they remind me of small businesses on social media.
To quote the book “…all crying their wares at the tops of their high voices. “I’ve a spell for everything under the sun in my shop!….” “Spell to make a crooked nose straight!”
Before you sell - wouldn’t you like to know if there is an interested or a need?
While reading the story – the characters had a dilemma and they went to the market-place – specifically looking for a fix.
People love to buy, but they will not be sold.
