Description

Read the ultimate classic comforting coming of age fantasy story.

‘Don’t you know a sand-fairy when you see one?’

I dare say you have often thought about what you would do if you were granted three wishes. The five children – Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane and their baby brother – had often talked about it but when they are faced with the grumpy sand-fairy they find it difficult to make up their minds. And that is just the beginning of their dilemmas. As they discover, there is nothing quite like a wish for getting you into terrible trouble.
