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...
