Five Children on the Western Front : Inspired by E. Nesbit's Five Children and it Stories Paperback

Description

This book is 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.

Before this last adventure ends, all will be changed, and the two younger children will have seen the Great War from every possible viewpoint - factory-workers, soldiers and sailors, nurses and the people left at home, and the war's impact will be felt right at the heart of their family.
