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 8,000-year-old Psammead, or sand fairy, who reluctantly grants them one wish a day. But the consequences are never quite what the children intended!
This magical edition for 2004 features a beautiful, newly illustrated cover plus 8 pages of stunning full-colour pictures from the new film based on the original story.
