When the children dug a hole in the gravel-pit, they were very surprised at what they found. It was a Psammead, a sand-fairy, thousands of years old. It was a strange little thing - fat and furry, and with eyes on long stalks. It was often very cross and unfriendly, but it could give wishes - one wish a day. How wonderful! the children said. But wishes are difficult things. They can get you into trouble.

    " I didn't even finish reading this one. I guess I've lost the imagination I need to read a book like this. But for kids, where anything is possible even if it doesn't make any sense, I guess it would be okay. It was just way too far fetched and goofy. "

    " not finishing. too bored. this is so episodic and i swear half the book is about these kids trying to get some lunch. that said, i can see how e. nesbit paved the way for other authors and some of my favorite books (the half magic books, for example), and as everyone loves her SO MUCH, i'll def give another of her books a try.

    " 5 children and it is a classic fantasy book. I was enthralled with it and had the children read it. I think it is an interesting story, a book that keeps you motivated to continue, as well as teaching lessons to it's reader on wanting or wishing for things without realizing potential pitfalls. "
