A fully illustrated chapter 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!
A brand new chapter book based on the magical movie!
Cyril, known as Squirrel, Anthea, known as Panther, Robert, Jane and their baby brother Hilary, known always as the Lamb are the Five Children.
With their father away at war and their mother nursing the wounded, these five siblings are sent to stay with their uncle in a strange house by the sea. There they meet eccentric Uncle, slightly crazy housekeeper Martha and evil scientist in the making, cousin Horace. While exploring, the children 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!
Blending magic, fun and perilous exploits, this all-action adventure story proves that the magic of wishes isn’t as strong as the power of family.

“The author with whom I identify most is E. Nesbit. She did some great, funny fairy tales.”
Edith Nesbit is the author of a series of children’s books which have remained firm favourites and bestsellers for decades. One of her most admired abilities as a writer is the way she combines real life situations with elements of magical fantasy, often injected with great humour. Translated and sold throughout the world, Five Children and It is perhaps the most famous of her books to display this magical combination. By the time of her death in 1924, E.Nesbit had published forty-four novels.
