Rosalind and Robbie don't want to spend the summer stuck in their dad's new house with irritating Smash and her glamorous mum. Dad's biggest wish is for everyone to get along. So when he suggests a picnic in nearby Oxshott woods, the children grudgingly agree. That afternoon, in a golden sandpit, Rosalind makes a wish of her own and something extraordinary happens. It just might change their summer from weeks of rows and bickering into the best holiday these four children have ever had.…
A funny and heartwarming story of four children who discover an extraordinary way to make wishes come true, Four Children and It is inspired by E. Nesbit's classic, Five Children and It.
"Readers always ask who inspired me to be a writer. Well, I adored E. Nesbit's books as a child–and I liked her lifestyle too. She liked Liberty clothes, silver jewelry, and buns for tea, and so do I! My favorite E. Nesbit story is Five Children and It–and this is my modern day tribute to her fantastic story." —Jacqueline Wilson
