The Story of the Amulet

Read by Helen Taylor

(4.8 stars; 175 reviews)

The third of the series featuring Cyril, Anthea, Robert and Jane: four children who are, as they often say, "the sort of people that wonderful things happen to". In 'Five Children and It' they were lucky enough to meet the magical, wish-granting Psammead - and in this final book they meet him once again. He guides them to an ancient Amulet that will help them find their hearts' desire - but it's only half an amulet, and seeking for the other half has them whizzing about through time on another series of amazing adventures. - Summary by Helen Taylor (6 hr 59 min)

E. Nesbit is one of my favorite writers because of what she wrote about she wrote about magic and it wasn’t just every day magic it was so much more interesting! If you like E. Nesbit (like me) you might like Edward Eager ( you can’t find him on LibriVox 😔
