Publisher's Summary

Julia McKenzie and Simon Carter star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of E Nesbit's much-loved children's novel.
On a hot, Edwardian summer's day, five children are playing in a gravel pit when they dig up something very peculiar: a funny, furry, fat litte creature with the feet of a monkey and bat's ears! The Psammead is a magical sand fairy who has the power to grant wishes: but the children can only have one wish a day, and the wishes only last until sunset. As the children try to get their hearts' desires, things go hilariously wrong, and they have a series of amazing adventures that will change their lives. But their last wish gets them into terrible trouble, and it will take all the Psammead's powers to put things right....
This delightfully whimsical drama, adapted by Malcolm McKee, stars Julia McKenzie as the older Jane and Mother, and Simon Carter as the Psammead. The wonder and excitement of much-loved children's classics lives on in BBC Radio's acclaimed full-cast dramatisations, complete with evocative music and sound effects.

Very Good

This radio adaptation was very good and it was a pleasure to listen to. My only complaint is that it was far too short and it lost some of the beauty of the book.
