Publisher Description

The third installment of Edith Nesbit's Psammead Trilogy continues to follow the lives of the original five children and their magical endeavors. The children once again encounter the Psammead, but this time they also discover an ancient amulet that contains time-traveling powers and fuels their adventure throughout the novel. As the children experience different civilizations through time, they meet a multitude of new characters and explore many notable locales such as Atlantis before the flood, Babylon, and the Tin Islands. Profiting greatly from Nesbit's deep research of ancient civilizations, this final installment is a joyous listen for adults and children.

"Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their friend the Psammead never fail to entertain! Fans of the Chronicles of Narnia will notice some episodic similarities between this book and The Magician's Nephew, though Nesbit predated Lewis. "

    " The third book in the Five Children series, is much the same as the others. The idea is very unique and has great potential, but the way it's carried out just isn't as good as it could be. Having the different attitudes and personalities of each of Cyril, Robert, Anthea, and Jane was very well-written in my opinion, but the whole time travel stories could have been so much more exciting.
