Diana Humphrey

 Cyril, Anthea, Robert and Jane, with their baby brother, set out to dig a hole to Australia in the gravel pit near their holiday cottage in Kent. To their surprise, they awaken a thousand-year-old Psammead, a sand fairy, who can grant them wishes.

Despite everyone's best intentions, the wishes always seem to go dreadfully wrong and the children are plunged into a series of adventures and tight spots from which they only manage to escape by a combination of brilliant ingenuity and occasional good luck.
