Four Children and It

Have you ever wanted to be famous? To be able to fly? This new smash-hit novel from Tracy Beaker creator and Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize winner Jacqueline Wilson is an adventure into a world where your wildest dreams can come true. Step-siblings Smash, Maudie, Robbie and Rosalind are on a family bonding trip to Oxshott Woods when they meet the Psammead, a magical creature who can grant wishes. But there’s a catch: the effects of the wish disappear at sunset, and the kids soon learn that you should always be careful what you wish for…
