Summary

When Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their baby brother go digging in the gravel pit, the last thing they expect to find is a Psammead - an ancient sand-fairy!

Having a sand-fairy for a pet means having one wish granted each day. But the children don't realize all of the trouble wishes can cause .

Read by 007 star Samantha Bond.

lovely classic, although not always pc!

"I liked the psamead and the wishes he gave " Ronan, aged 4.

great performance and enjoyable adventure, a little dated at times and as such not always completely politically correct, but enjoyable nonetheless.
