The "It" in Two Children and It is an ancient and cantankerous Psammead
(sand-fairy) that our characters unearth one day while playing in a gravel pit.
This magical creature grants our friends a wish a day, with each wish lasting
only until sunset. Unfortunately the wishes don't work out as planned and our
characters soon learn; be careful what you wish for - you just might get it...
The original story, Five Children and It, was written
in the 1800's by noted children's novelist Edith Nesbit. Book By You®
has edited, updated and personalized the story for children and parents reading
enjoyment. The book is ideal for children of reading age or the novel can be
read to younger children as a bedtime story. Themes such as the value of
friendship, perseverance and following your dreams are explored and uniquely
presented in a manner only possible through a full-length book format.
Michael Pocock, founder of Book By You Publishing, commented,
"During these trying times children are surrounded with violence, commercialism
and uncertainty. In creating Two Children and It, we wanted to bring
back the artful form of storytelling while helping to deliver meaningful themes.
We believe we have succeeded and the response from parents and children has been
overwhelming. Children are motivated and enticed to read by seeing their own
names, along with other familiar people and places, featured in the book. The
full-length novel format enables us to present stories that, when combined with
personalization, evokes emotions and themes in a fun and entertaining manner.
Children love the world of fantasy and their imaginations run wild as their
personalized characters cavort throughout this 130-page novel.
Two Children and It is vastly different from current personalized
picture books that contain little or no story content."
Two Children and It can be purchased for $24.95. For
