Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Written by E.Nesbit, author of 'The Railway Children', this is the movie of five childrens' chance encounter with 'The Psammead' - an ancient, extremely irritable, sand fairy who has the ability to make wishes come. The only problem is that the wishes only last till sunset and the children also find it hard to think of sensible wishes!

John Stephenson directs this adaptation of the classic children's novel by E. Nesbit. During the First World War a group of children are sent to stay with their eccentric Uncle Albert (Kenneth Branagh). There, they meet 'It', a Psammead - or sand fairy - in a gravel pit. This ancient, peculiar and rather irritable creature (voiced by Eddie Izzard) has the power to grant the children a wish every day, that will last until sunset. But the children soon discover it is harder than one might imagine to think of sensible wishes - and each one gets them into all kinds of unexpected scrapes...
