Five Children and It
A charming tale of magic and mayhem from E. Nesbit, the much-loved author of The Railway Children. What would you do if you could wish for anything in the world? In this timeless tale, five children get to find out when they meet a Psammead, a grumpy but magical creature with the ability to grant wishes. At first their new power is a dream come true. But the children soon learn that every action has a reaction, and there’s truth to that old saying that you should be careful what you wish for… A hugely entertaining and enjoyable classic from one of the pioneers of children’s fantasy fiction.
