The five children have grown up, and World War I has begun in earnest. The sand fairy has become a creature of stories...until, for the first time in 10 years, he suddenly reappears.
Before this last adventure ends, all will be changed; the two younger children will have seen the Great War from every possible viewpoint, and the war's impact will be felt right at the heart of their family.

A wonderful book
It is so rare to find a sequel to a great series of books which really works. Beautifully crafted and presented,
stereotypes can get annoying
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Not for me and (if I could influence my children...) I wouldn't let them near it.
What could Kate Saunders have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Hold back on the stereotypes - come on Kate!
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jilly Bond?
The frightfully posh voice was probably suitable for the book
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I was hopeful that someone could come up with a child's-eye view of the pre-war and WW1 years - so marks for trying!

Not quite what I expected
It took two starts to get into and understands the story. I began the book while working work students, my attention was divided, so I could not get into the story. I put it away and began over spring break. Much better once you understand what is going on. Definitely should read the first book in the series.
