Harry Potter fans, take note: magic is alive and well in this exciting adventure, which has been a favorite of readers for more than 50 years.
Ordinary kids Jane, Katharine, Mark, and Martha love reading fantastic stories, but after finishing a long-awaited E. Nesbit book that's just come in at the library, they can't help but sigh. "Why don't things like that ever happen to us?" asks Martha. Soon enough, something does.
Faced with a dull summer in the city, Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha suddenly find themselves involved in a series of extraordinary adventures after Jane discovers an ordinary-looking coin that seems to grant wishes.
