The Story of the Amulet

Our rating: ***

When Cyril, Anthea, Robert, and Jane find the Psammead, the wish-granting creature they met in Five Children and It, in a pet store and rescue it, the Psammead tells them about an amulet. They purchase it and discover it is only half an amulet. But the half will take them anywhere back in time to look for the other half. And the whole amulet will give them their hearts’ desire.

Despite a kind of weird part at the end, it’s a pretty good book. I’m not sure that I liked it as much as Five Children and It. (Which by the rating would make sense.)
