The first book about Mollie, Peter and the Wishing-Chair, The Adventures of the Wishing-Chair, was published in 1937. It contained 36 chapters that had originally been serialised in Sunny Stories magazine during that year. In 1939 a new edition came out, reduced to 31 chapters. Editions from 1963 to 1968 had 27 chapters and the current edition has 26. In 1950 a second book, The Wishing-Chair Again, was published, having been serialised in Sunny Stories the previous year. In 2000, a new collection entitled More Wishing-Chair Stories was published, containing some of the removed chapters from the original edition of The Adventures of the Wishing-Chair as well as additional Wishing-Chair stories from Sunny Stories and the 1952 Enid Blyton Omnibus. 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!

When Peter and Mollie wander into an antique shop to buy a present for their mother's birthday, little do they know how enthralling life is about to become. Quite by accident, they acquire a wishing-chair which sprouts wings and flies them wherever they want to go. Over the course of the books they travel to all kinds of weird and wonderful places — the Land of Dreams, the Village of Slipperies, Mister Grim's School for Bad Brownies, the Land of Goodies and many others, meeting characters like the Grabbit Gnomes, Witch Kirri-Kirri, the Snoogle, Mr. Spells and Winks the brownie. Enid Blyton used some of the same lands in her Faraway Tree series. At The Wishing Chair, we celebrate the creative woman. We are handcrafted and designed in India for women by women.
