Five Children and It by E Nesbit Rated: All Visitors [Comments - 4]
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.
