    What a treat! I highly encourage you and your children to be adventurous and pick up a book from the vintage classics.
    We recently ventured back in time of the 1900’s with the long ago Edith Bland, better known as, Author E. Nesbit, English author and poet. She wrote many children’s book, one of which, we have just finished reading, Five Children & IT.
    Five Children & IT, is set in the 1900’s where times for children, I daresay were different. You will read about fashion of clothes being different. Depending on age and wealth, generally, the babies wore dresses; boys wore knickerbockers and girls pinafores over their dresses with petticoats underneath.
    Other differences would be in the English expressions used. We found these to be most frightfully fun! Look here, when the children would find themselves in one of the many fixes, things looked pretty jolly beastly! I’m not humbugging you!
    As for the story, it is about five children and a sand fairy, or psammead that grants wishes. Not just one wish, no, not three wishes either. What would you think if I told you these children got the dream everyone dreams, unlimited wishes! A new wish everyday! What do you think they wished for? And, let’s suppose I tell you that this sand fairy, they call IT, appears to have an ulterior motive that leads from one wish after another into hilarious, frightful disaster! What really is he up to?
    Five Children & IT written by E.Nesbit
    There is a reason that since its first published date in 1902 it has never been out of print!
    5 Stars!  We are out to get more vintage classics on our shelves!

    Good Book For Anybody

    This books can be enjoyed by anybody no matter thier age. I know it is meant to be for small children but I first read it when I was 16 and I really enjoyed it. And, if you are a fan of The Chronicles of Narnia, you will probably especially like this book. The children in this book are very reminiscent of the Pevensies. I highly encourage everybody to read it.

    Truly a classic

    This is one of the *very* few classics I read and liked as a child. Now, of course, I have a much greater appreciation for classic literature, and this still remains one of my favourite stories. The characters are completely endearing and of course, I love the Psammead ('It'). I highly recommend this to anyone, child or adult, looking for a classic that reads fairly quickly and is highly enjoyable!

    Five Children and It

    I loved Five Children and It. This was the first book I read by Nesbit. She's an awesome author!

    A gentler Narnia and a cure for the Harry-Potter-only syndrome

    When I was 8 (9 years ago), I attempted to read C.S.Lewis' Narnia series, and scared myself silly. My thirst for fantasy was later quenched by Edith Nesbit's psammead series (the 'psammead' is an Egyptian sandfairy that these books are centered on). Psammy and I hit it off immediately. This whirlwind fantasy series is aimed at a slightly younger audience than Lewis' series; they are far more child-friendly, and each book is a pretty quick read. Additionally, the use of Egyptian and other middle-eastern mythology provides an interesting break from most children's European-based fantasy books. I recently recommended this series to a cousin who claimed he liked to read 'Harry Potter and nothing else.' He, too, was swept away by the five children's adventures with It.

    Best E. Nesbit book ever!

    This book, Five Children and It, was the best book by Edith Nesbit. I loved following the adventures of Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and the Lamb. The Lamb was my favorite character even if he wasn't a major main character. My favorite chapters were 'Being Wanted' and 'Grown Up', both involving the Lamb. I really recommend this book. It's on my top five list of favorite books.

    More people ought to know what a Psammead is

    This is one of my favorite books of the type. I've read it many times since I first picked it up at the age of nine or so, and enjoy it more at every reading. The sand-fairy's personality is...well, just read the book!

    Great book!

    I thought this was a great book and even though it is written on a younger level it is enjoyable for all ages. I also liked the illustrations, I just wich that they were in color. I read in a book called 'Journey to Narnia' by Kathryn Lindskoog that C. S. Lewis loved to read E. Nesbit books when he was young. I have only read 2 of her book but I am on my third. Feel free to E-mail me if you have any questions or whatever.
