This delightful novel begins when a family of five children moves from London to the English countryside. While playing in a gravel pit soon after the move, they discover an ancient and rather grumpy sand-fairy known as the Psammead, who agrees to grant one wish of theirs per day. The children's wishes send them on adventure after adventure, but rarely turn out as expected. (Summary by Kara)

Fabulous story for kids. The majority of readers were fantastic and deserve 5 stars. Unfortunately whoever read track 5 dropped my rating to 2 . I couldn’t get past the interference from the tape recorder, noises in the background, kids shouting in the background, and the awful narration of the reader.

Great story, kept my kids engaged and laughing. It seems to change narrators with each chapter, which wouldn't be so bad if the recording quality was somewhat consistent. Some narrators are difficult to listen to because of poor quality recording. However, it was still worth the listen, even with the difficult recordings.
