‘The Phoenix and the Carpet’ by E. Nesbit


phoenix_carpet3_1707.jpgCyril, Robert, Anthea and Jane need a new carpet for the nursery, but it turns out to be a magic carpet containing a phoenix egg! They discover how to hatch the egg, but a magical creature with a big ego and a wishing carpet that can read but not talk leads straight to another hilarious series of adventures! Throw in a thief, a cook, a lot of cats and a cow, and stir well with a Phoenix feather for a recipe for excitement…

The second book of the “Psammead” trilogy, following on directly after “Five Children and It” sees the children once again being caught up in magic events which, despite their best intentions, cause chaos and usually result in their being sent to bed!

I also did this with The Online Stage, but a different version is also on Librivox!
