This sequel to Five Children and It sees the four children finding a carpet – and then being told by a phoenix that it is a magic carpet. It means a series of adventures. Anna Bentinck reads the tale with great charm. With delightful music of the period.
- I am thrilled to see Edith...
I am thrilled to see Edith Nesbitt's wonderful Edwardian childrens' books in this listing. Yes, they are old fashioned, but such great stories, I loved them when I was a child and I love them still.
After all, why should children always read "relevant" books from their own age, place and culture. Far more exciting to go wandering back to the Victorian age - when children were just the same as now, but had somewhat different expectations of life and standards of behaviour.
