Description

Psammead Trilogy Book #1

Robert, Anthea, Cyril, Jane, and the baby Lamb—while playing in a gravel pit—uncover a mischievous sand fairy, the Psammead, who grants them one wish each day.

But wishes are capricious things, and although each of the children's wishes goes hilariously wrong, it is their final wish that has the power to be their undoing. And when the children beg the Psammead for the chance to make things right, his intervention comes at great cost.

Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time. ClassicJoe proudly brings literary classics to today's digital readers, connecting those who love to read with authors whose work continues to get people talking.

      • bioText:

        English author Edith Nesbit's impressive body of work includes poems, plays, novels, and even ghost stories, however, she is best known for her beloved children's adventure stories, published under the name E. Nesbit. Among Nesbit's best-known works are The Story of the Treasure-Seekers, The Railway Children, The Wouldbegoods and Five Children and It. Nesbit's novels departed from the children's literary tradition of fantasy-worlds popularized by Lewis Carroll and Kenneth Grahame, and instead focused on the adventures to be had from real-life experiences. Nesbit's work inspired other writers like C. S. Lewis, P. L Travers, and J. K. Rowling, and many of her stories have been adapted for film and television. In addition to writing, Nesbit was an activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, a socialist group that provided the foundation for the modern British Labour Party. Nesbit died in 1924.
