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 the trouble wishes can cause ...A timeless classic with an introduction by Quentin Blake, award-winning illustrator and first-ever Children's Laureate (1999-2001).
