NESBIT, E.: Phoenix and the Carpet (The) (Abridged)

This sequel to Five Children and It sees the four children finding a carpet—and then being told by a phoenix that it is a magic carpet. It means a series of adventures. Anna Bentinck reads the tale with great charm. With delightful music of the period.
