    One thought on “The Return of the Psammead”

    1. I had winced when it was broadcast as I'd thought that this disregarded The [(Puffin)Story of the] Amulet, E. Nesbit's own second Psammead story. As it happens The Amulet is acknowledged on the first page. The book's origins as a television commission are evident - one can tell where the expensive episodes are, and where the budget-saving ones are found - but Cresswell respects the beats and the narration of a Nesbit novel albeit with a slightly modernised idiom and vocabulary, has the advantage [...]

    2. Another revisiting of a childhood favourite on a visit home. I read this book after reading Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet as a kid and enjoying them. This one feels slightly more relaxed but still contains the same gentle language as the first couple. The added element of "The Quest" keeps the separate wish chapters running together; sometimes it's slightly creaky but in the main it's quite charming. A very sweet book for children.
