Be careful what you wish. You may get it! That's the message writer Edith Nesbit clearly imparts in this delightful tale of five youngsters who encounter a bizarre creature. This old-fashioned story, recounts the adventures of children who go out to play one day, intending to dig a hole to the other side of the world to see if people walk upside down. They don't get very far before they meet an ancient sand fairy. Obliged to grant their wishes (because that's what sand fairies do), this curious looking, furry brown quadruped with bat's ears warns them that there is a catch: the wishes come undone at sunset. An enchanting tale of the ability of children to believe things that are beyond belief, Five Children and It will delight today's young readers as much as it did generations ago.
