      • bioText:

        Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) lived in England and had dreamed of becoming a poet since she was fifteen years old. After her husband fell ill, it was up to her to support her small family. For the next nineteen years, she wrote novels, essays, articles, poems, and short stories; but it was not until 1899, when The Story of the Treasure Seekers was published, that she achieved great success. Her groundbreaking style of depicting realistic, believable children quickly gained a popularity that has lasted for more than a century.

Five Children and It
fullDescription

Curious to see if people on the other side of the globe walk upside down, Robert, Anthea, Cyril, Jane, and their baby brother start digging a hole to Australia. They don't get too far, however, before they dig up a furry brown creature with bat's ears. It is a Psammead, an ancient Sand-fairy. The Sammyadd, as the children call it, grumpily tells them that he is obliged to grant their wishes, because making people's wishes come true is what Sand-fairies do. However, there is one catch: the wishes come undone at sunset. No matter how carefully the children plan, their wishes keep backfiring, and they realize that you have to be careful what you wish for—you may get it.

      • source: —J. K. Rowling, in O, The Oprah Magazine
      • content: "[Nesbit is] the children's writer with whom I most identify."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: First published in 1902, Edith Nesbit's novel tells the story of four children (and their burdensome baby brother), whose boring summer is turned on its ears when they discover an unlikely fairy capable of fulfilling one wish per day. As their friendship with the grumpy, furry, bug-eyed creature grows, the children learn to be careful what they wish for. With musical elasticity, Virginia Leishman speaks to the listener, matching the author's conversational style, guiding this classical flight of fancy. Leishman's magnetic tongue holds the listener's attention as she brings the children, and their wishes, to life. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
