'I love her books - particularly the Five Children and It sequence' NEIL GAIMAN

'My all-time favourite classic children's author' JACQUELINE WILSON

'The cheerful, child-centred anarchy of Five Children and It is still my inspiration and delight' KATE SAUNDERS, GUARDIAN

Digging in the gravel pit on a hot summer's day, five children discover 'it': a grumpy creature with eyes like a snail's, ears like a bat's, and a tubby body all covered in fur. 'It' is a Psammead, an ancient sand-fairy who has the power to grant the children one wish a day.

That, you might think, would be a dream come true! But you need to be very careful what you wish for: whether it's for wings, treasure or beauty, things can - and often will - go wrong.

With all the illustrations by H. R. Millar, newly scanned from the original edition.
