Sintesi dell'editore

Robert, Anthea, Jane, Cyril and the Lamb are on holiday at the White House, a beautiful place on the edge of a hill with a chalk quarry one side and a gravel-pit on the other. Before they have even been there a week, they make an amazing discovery. Digging in the gravel-pit, they find a fairy! The Psammead is brown, furry, fat and shaped like a spider- as well as being very old, and very grumpy. But most importantly, the creature can grant wishes, and the children are soon having the most wonderful adventures...

An abridged reading by Lynda Bellingham of E. Nesbit's classic tale.

THIS HAPPENS BEFORE MOTOR CARS

GO TO BED AND TRY AND BE BETTER CHILDREN IN THE MORNING
This is your typical "Be careful what you wish for" type of stories. Each day is like a new story as the children get a new wish from the sand fairy. Kids will enjoy it, as the children get into bad situations, caused by their wishes.

Lamb
The baby is called lamb, cause he is always making Baa sounds.

The only problem is that it's not longer!

I had forgotten I had an Audilble membership, so I was using up the credits before cancelling my membership. I chose Five Children and It randomly for the last credit.

I put this book on during a 2-hour drive. Unfortunately, I spent most of the last hour of the drive, after this story finished, listening to "Have you got the next one yet? Can we listen to the next one? Mu-um, where's the next sand fairy story?" The only way I avoided the same questions on the way home was by re-playing this story. I think it's safe to say that my 5 year old liked it!

So I've now re-activated my membership and will be purchasing The Phoenix and the Carpet.

good family story

kids definitely need to be sitting and listening to this the narrating was somewhat monologue for younger kids.

Loved this story

My kids (ages 7-2) and I loved this story! It has adventure and some great life lessons. The more we listen to it, the more we laugh.

I liked everything

my 5 year old: "another kid would love it, all of it. the fairy and the children and the parents were good. the fairy did magic for them and made magic tricks, one of the tricks was the fairy made a magical castle. there was nothing really bad... there were some bad things but then they were okay." 😊

Fun Listen, Good Discussion Starters

The story is both fun & good for discussion starters concerning morality for younger children? Would be a great story to apply classical five common topics of definition, comparison, relationship, circumstance & testimony in order to ask questions to kids.

Abridged yet delightful

Having just finished the unabridged read aloud with my kids (free on kindle), I did realize this version was a shortened one when I noted the duration but maybe they could make that clearer in the description.

That aside, this was utterly delightful and very well done! I wanted my husband to get a taste of what we had enjoyed so much at reading time so we listened to this in the car and he was laughing out loud - what a hit!

This is a great children’s book

This is a great children’s book, and I hope he recommended for children younger than 12. I was looking for a little more, so I only gave it three stars. But if I was 10 years old, I would’ve given it five stars!

Very good book

This is a good book but our 9 year old daughter says the English accent of narrator made some words hard to understand. Also, the story is absolutely one of the best (according to our 9 year old).

Very bad value

when searching for titles from E Nesbit I was offered this for one credit. having bought it I found out the whole trilogy is only one credit, that's not fair.
Lucent book, beautifully read, but go straight to the psamead trilogy instead.

My daughter loved this

The only boy that hasn’t time traveled well is the ‘Red Indians’ wish - the native Americans are depicted as fighting savages before disappearing. Otherwise, this is perfect.

unexpected racism

I wasn't expecting a whole portion of the story to be a very racist portrayal of indigenous people. I understand it's an old story, but still it was rather igregious.

other than that it was a fun listen and was well read.

Quite good

The performance was a bit croaky
and I didn't really understand some of the words , that's why I rated it like that. Darragh, age 9.

Wonderful!

What a delight this story is for young and old alike. No political points to be made as seem to proliferate in modern children's stories, just a lovely, good old fashioned story that any child would enjoy. Beautifully read by the equally lovely Linda Bellingham.

times have changed

enjoyable but unfortunate bigoted language used... appreciate is an old story from times when those words or descriptions were used but could maybe be replaced or updated
