Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet, and The Story of the Amulet;The Psammead Series - Books 1 - 3 (Paperback)
This glorious collection of vintage children's stories by Edith Nesbit features all three books from the Psammead trilogy: Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet, and The Story of the Amulet.
The fantastical tales revolve around five children; Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their baby brother known as The Lamb (named after his first word was 'Baa'). In the first story, the children discover a Psammead or Sand-Fairy while on holiday in the countryside. The fairy can grant the children one wish a day, resulting in many magical adventures, often with hilarious results.
The adventure continues in the two following stories, and with the aid of magical elements like a flying carpet and a time-travelling amulet, there's no shortage of mischievous antics for the three siblings.
Immerse yourself in a world of magic with these three classic children's stories by E. Nesbit brought back to life in this beautiful volume. Treasured for decades past and a perfect addition to any bookshelf, this edition by Read & Co. Books will bring joy to young and old readers alike.
