Let your imagination take flight with The Phoenix and the Carpet. From a heart-pounding journey over the ocean on a magic carpet to hilarious misadventures while surrounded by hundreds of pets, The Phoenix and the Carpet is a nonstop, exciting ride for the young and young-at-heart.   Read More 

The excitement begins when our two personalized characters discover a magic carpet and an egg that hatches into an amazing talking bird: the Phoenix, a helpful but amusingly egocentric creature who can't understand why everyone isn't worshipping its magnificence!

When the bird reveals that the magic carpet will grant them three wishes a day, the children launch themselves into many adventures throughout the world ... often ending up in unexpected predicaments! Their antics cause a stir wherever they go, but thanks to their wits and imagination, and with help from the Phoenix, the children overcome many challenges.

Based on Edith Nesbit's classic children's fantasy novel written in 1904, The Phoenix and the Carpet is one of five in our Edith Nesbit collection. These are wonderful stories, updated, edited and personalized by Book By You, where 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 personalized story.

Applause for The Phoenix and the Carpet

"My daughter just finished Phoenix and asked for a sequel! She hasn't laughed so much while reading in a long time. At one point she told me she just had to read 'the funny cow scene' to me! Thanks a million for such an enjoyable experience. We both can't wait for your next book."Deidre S., Northbrook, IL
"We gave our grandsons their own copies (we've learned our lesson from last year) and you should have seen the grins on their faces, especially when they saw their pictures on the back. They love starring in these stories, and we love putting them in the spotlight!"Mr. and Mrs. N., Pratt, WV
"Thanks for your amazing novels. This is my favorite so far. In the book, the kids misbehave but learn how to solve problems together, and what I love is that even with the 'lessons' there's always humor and excitement."Steph C., Elyria, NE
