This is the third of the trilogy beloved by those who first met E.
Nesbit through her Five Children and It, and The Phoenix and the
Carpet. Enchanting blend of fantasy and realism, as the children
come across their old friend, the sand fairy, and, with the fairy's
aid, secure a charm with wonderful powers. They go journeying back
to the past, and history and ancient peoples come alive. Here's an
author who can write magic tales with rare matter-of-faotness and
make their children live. The new pictures by J.S. Goodall,
unfortunately, have such an old-fashioned quality that they belie
the timelessness of the story and give the book a dated look.
Magical fantasy and misunderstandings combined in this classic time-travel adventure. When Cyril, Robert, Anthea and Jane rescue their old friend the Psammead from a pet shop, the grateful sand fairy leads them to half an amulet which has the power to take them back in time in search of the other half - and the complete amulet can give them their heart's desire! But magic can cause problems in real life, especially when the Queen of Babylon visits the children in London . . .
