Summary:

Robert, Cyril, Anthea, Jane and The Lamb (their baby brother) have moved from London to the countryside of Kent. Exploring the gravel pits around their new home, the children inadvertently unearth a Psammead, also known as a sand fairy.

Granted a wish each day, the children embark on a series of adventures, or misadventures brought on by magic's twisted interpretation of their own desires.

Story Notes:

TO JOHN BLAND

My Lamb, you are so very small,
You have not learned to read at all.
Yet never a printed book withstands
The urgence of your dimpled hands.
So, though this book is for yourself,
Let mother keep it on the shelf
Till you can read. O days that Pass,
That day will come too soon, alas!
