Five Children, Jacqueline Wilson and It?

As part od Puffin's Classic's 30th anniversary, Jacqueline Wilson will be publishing an updated version of E Nesbit's Five Children and It. To be published in August, Wilson's story will centre around four contemporary children who travel back in time to meet Nesbit's original group. They discover the Psammead in a big sand pit in Oxshott Woods, Surrey and have their fondest wishes granted.
Wilson has been a fan of Nesbit's writing since she was young;
"I loved the way she wrote very approachably. This is a kind of tribute to her because I so admire."
As well as Four Children and It, we can look forward to The Further Tales of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson, and more!
Thank you to The Bookseller for this information.
