Publisher's Summary

While exploring the beach, four adventurous children make the acquaintance of a very odd creature: a sand fairy. When they have adapted to the brusque and forthright demeanor of the fairy, they discover that he has unusual powers, which he can be persuaded to demonstrate. As a result, the children enjoy many bizarre adventures, some of which are dangerous, but all of which are entertaining.
Five Children and It is the first volume of a trilogy. The later escapades of the children are described in the succeeding volumes, The Phoenix and the Carpet and The Story of the Amulet.
Narrated by Cate Barratt.

Didn’t love the narration

I love this story.
I would have preferred a single narrator. With the different voices and characters there were pauses that lasted too long. The flow with not awesome.
