Cyril, 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!

A fun story and an excellent recording - just as good as the first book in the series.

A classic tale of the macabre, excellently told.
