Summary

Rosalind and Robbie don't want to spend the summer stuck in their dad's new house with irritating Smash and her glamorous mum. Dad's biggest wish is for everyone to get along. So when he suggests a picnic in nearby Oxshott woods, the children grudgingly agree. That afternoon, in a golden sandpit, Rosalind makes a wish of her own and something extraordinary happens. It just might change their summer from weeks of rows and bickering into the best holiday these four children have ever had ...

A funny and heartwarming story of four children who discover an extraordinary way to make wishes come true, Four Children and It is inspired by E Nesbit's classic, Five Children and It.

Absolutely amazing

I loved four children and it. I listened to it four times and it was good since I sometimes don’t have time for reading. This is really great story and it made me laugh and gasp. Through the story I was on the edge of my seat and it is a interesting modern spin on the classic, five children and it. I definitely recommend since the voice is soothing and is great for before bed. I was doubtful at first but it soon became one of my favourite audiobooks.

Very good book

This was a good buy but I felt the story very short. I loved five children and it and am also a Jacqueline Wilson fan so this was very good for me. it's also read by the narrator, which I liked.
