The story centers around our two main characters who are on summer vacation. One day, while our dynamic duo are playing in an old gravel pit, (digging a hole to Australia) they uncover a most unusual creature. This extraordinary creature has eyes on long horns like a snail's, and it can move them in and out like telescopes; it has ears like a bat's, and its tubby body is shaped like a spider's and covered with thick soft fur. It has hands and feet like a monkey's! The sand-fairy, as the children call it, is an ancient, ugly, irritable and cantankerous creature - its only redeeming feature is that it can grant wishes!

Everyday, It grants our characters a wish that lasts until sunset. Of course, our friends are overjoyed with this discovery; instantly thinking of all the wishes they've always wanted. But no matter how carefully the children plan - their wishes keep backfiring. For example, our characters wish to be 'as handsome and attractive as a beautiful day' the only problem is they are so beautiful that they don't recognize each other and neither does anyone else! Whether it's wishing for wings or a castle with a moat - each wish results in some very unexpected predicaments. The message eventually becomes clear; be careful what you wish for - you may just get it!
