9780099572985: Five Children & It (Vintage Classics)

Includes character guide, quiz, author info, historical background, fun activities, and glossary

Don't you know a sand-fairy when you see one?

I dare say you have often thought about what you would do if you were granted three wishes. The five children—Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their baby brother—had often talked about it but when they are faced with the grumpy sand-fairy they find it difficult to make up their minds. And that is just the beginning of their dilemmas. As they discover, there is nothing quite like a wish for getting you into terrible trouble.

About the Author:

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) is the author of Five Children and It, The Railway Children, and The Treasure Seekers.

Review:

"I love E. Nesbit—I think she is great and I identify with the way that she writes. Her children are very real children and she was quite a groundbreaker in her day."  —J. K. Rowling

"She speaks to the reader, and it's almost as if though you could hear her voice."  —Quentin Blake

"Stunning...these covers just draw you in and the books themselves feel good in your hand."  —ShelfTalker
