The Story of the Amulet is the delightful sequel to Five Children and It. Sometime after their adventures with the Psammead (the ancient sand fairy they found while digging for treasure), the children chance upon him again — held captive in a pet store where they owner had mistaken him for an exotic breed of dog!
Of course there’s a rescue, followed by astonishing adventure. The extraordinary creature leads them to an amulet — or rather, half an amulet, which has the power to take them back anywhere in time to search for the other half. The complete amulet can give them their hearts’ desires . . . as if they didn’t have enough on their hands already!
One of Nesbit’s very best books – a family favorite.
