An incredible, heart-wrenching sequel to E. Nesbit's Five Children and It, set on the eve of the First World War.
 
The five children have grown up - war will change their lives for ever.
 
Cyril is off to fight, Anthea is at art college, Robert is a Cambridge scholar and Jane is at high school. The Lamb is the grown up age of 11, and he has a little sister, Edith, in tow. The sand fairy has become a creature of stories ... until he suddenly reappears. The siblings are pleased to have something to take their minds off the war, but this time the Psammead is here for a reason, and his magic might have a more serious purpose.
