Scholastic Classics: Five Children and It

Think you’d be bored if you moved to the back of beyond? Not if you met a sand-fairy! The five children in this story have just moved from the bright lights of London to the quiet countryside. At first, it’s all a bit yawnsome. But one day, playing in the gravel-pit, they dig up a grumpy sand-fairy: the Psammead. ‘It’ has the power to grant wishes. Trouble is, things tend to go awry… A true classic. This magical story of family, friendship and high adventure is pure escapism in book form.
