In this incredible, heart-wrenching story reminiscent of E. Nesbits Five Children and It, Kate Saunders illustrates the power of war but the even greater power of family, and the love that carries us out of the darkness of despair into the light of hope. The sand fairy, also known as the Psammead, is merely a creature from stories Lamb and Edith have heard their older brothers and sisters tell . . . until he suddenly reappears. Lamb and Edith are pleased to have something to take their minds off the war, but this time the Psammeads magic might have a serious purpose.Before their adventure ends, all will be changed, and the Lamb and Edith will have seen the Great War from every possible viewpointthat of factory workers, soldiers and sailors, and nurses. But most of all, the wars impact will be felt by those left behind, at the very heart of their family.Shortlisted for the Carnegie MedalFrom the Hardcover edition.
