The Psammead

After moving from London to the countryside of Kent, a group of five siblings chance upon a Psammead while playing in a gravel pit. The Psammead, a sand fairy able to grant wishes, agrees to grant them one wish each day with the condition that the wish will turn to stone by sunset. Both the children and the Psammead soon get more than they bargained for.
