Its eyes were on long horns like a snail's eyes... it had ears like a bat's ears, and its tubby body was shaped like a spider's and covered with thick, soft fur... and it had hands and feet like a monkey's. `It' was the Psammead, the grumpy sand-fairy that could, if in the mood, grant a wish a day. When the five children befriend him they find that each wish granted often has a sting in its tail. Golden guineas are too difficult to spend, wings let them down in a most inconvenient way, and when they wish for Red Indians, the children forget that they can sometimes be a little warlike. Generations of children have come to love the fantasy and the whimsy of the stories in the classic book from the author of The Railway Children.

I am currently reading this book to my eight year daughter. While I am enjoying it, she seems to find it a little slow. The premise - the children finding an ancient sand fairy which can grant one wish a day - is wonderful and full of promise but each chapter is rather long and ponderous. However the moral "be happy with what you've got" weaves its ways through the plot and the characters are like real children, not storybook characters, so the dialogue is a lot of fun to read aloud.
