Phoenix & The Carpet – E Nesbit



When Cyril, Anthea, Robert and Jane accidentally destroy a carpet in their London home with fi reworks, their parents replace it with a second-hand one. Upon unfurling it, the children fi nd an egg inside, and, when one of them accidentally drops it into the fi re, it hatches into a magical golden phoenix, who tells them that he can take them on the carpet to any location they wish. This revelation sets the siblings – and their baby brother Lamb – off on wild adventures, taking them around London and to far-fl ung destinations such as India and a remote tropical island. After the success of Five Children and It, E. Nesbit decided to recast its much-loved characters in this sequel, which has now become a classic in its own right, enchanting generations of readers and inspiring many fi lm and television adaptations.
