This carefully crafted ebook: THE PSAMMEAD TRILOGY “ The Magical Adventures of Five Friends (Illustrated) is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Five Children and It begins with a group of children that move from London to the countryside of Kent. The five children “ Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their baby brother, known as the Lamb “ are playing in a gravel pit when they uncover a rather grumpy, ugly, and occasionally malevolent Psammead or sand-fairy, who has the ability to grant wishes. The Phoenix and the Carpet follows the further adventures of Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane and the Lamb. Their mother buys the children a new carpet to replace one from the nursery that they have destroyed in an accidental fire. The children find an egg in the carpet, which hatches into a talking Phoenix. The Phoenix explains that the carpet is a magic one that will grant them three wishes a day. In The Story of the Amulet the children re-encounter the Psammead. However, as it no longer grants wishes to the children, its capacity is mainly advisory in relation to the children's other discovery, the Amulet, thus following a successfully established formula. Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was the author of world famous books for children - the tales of fantastical adventures, journeys back in time and travel to magical worlds. Nesbit also wrote for adults, including novels, short stories and four collections of horror stories.

Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2: "Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: “The story’s signature fantasies—the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer—are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the dæmons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred “Whether this is a reader’s first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition.” —School Library Journal “The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman’s novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose.” —Booklist From the Hardcover edition.
