Be careful what you wish for!

When five children – Robert, Anthea, Cyril, Jane and baby Lamb – move from London to rural Kent, they are amazed to find an ancient sand-fairy while playing in a gravel pit. This 'Psammead' has the power to grant wishes, but the children will soon discover that wishing is a dangerous business and the consequences may not always be to their liking.
