Publisher Description

'Rain, rain, go away,' said Anthea; 'but it never DOES go'

I expect you know how boring it can be to stay indoors on rainy days. it was on one of those dull days that the five children accidentally set their nursery on fire (with fireworks). No one thought that that disastrous day would bring the start of new adventures.

But the new nursery carpet, when it arrives, comes with something odd wrapped inside it- an enormous glowing egg. And inside is the most beautiful bird you've ever seen - in fact, not a bird- a noble and fabulous phoenix. New adventures just might have begun...

Includes exclusive content- In the Backstory you can ponder what you would wish for and find out which character you most resemble!

Author Biography

Edith Nesbit was born in 1858. Her father died when she was only three and so her family moved all over England. Poverty was something she had known first hand, both as a child and as a young married woman with small children. Like the Railway Childrens' Mother, she was forced to try and sell her stories and poems to editors. Her first children's book, The Treasure Seekers, was published in 1899. She also wrote Five Children and It but her most famous story is The Railway Children which was first published in 1905 and it hasn't been out of print since. Edith Nesbit was a lady ahead of her time - she cut her hair short, which was considered a very bold move in Victorian times, and she was a founding member of a group that worked towards improvements in politics and society called The Fabian Society. She died in 1924.

Review

It was Nesbit who, almost a century before JK Rowling invented Harry Potter, had put the fantasy and magic into children's literature with novels such as Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet Guardian Earlier generations of children loved Edith Nesbit. So did I, and the ordinarily extraordinary stories still bewitch Guardian
