This - the author's original, classic work - is the tale of five siblings who are sent to stay with their uncle in a strange house by the sea.
There they meet Uncle, housekeeper Martha and cousin Horace. While exploring, they dig up an ill-tempered, mischievous 8000-year-old Psammead, or sand fairy, who reluctantly grants them one wish a day. But the consequences are never quite what the children intended!
Fully illustrated chapter book and picture book with all the excitement, adventure and magic of the stunning movie based on the children's literary classic by E Nesbit. With full colour pictures throughout!
