The Phoenix and the Carpet
by E. Nesbit




Overview -
'Rain, rain, go away, ' said Anthea; 'but it never DOES go'

But the new nursery carpet, when it arrives, comes with something odd wrapped inside it: an enormous glowing egg. And inside is the most beautiful bird you've ever seen - in fact, not a bird: a noble and fabulous phoenix. New adventures just might have begun...

Includes exclusive content: In the Backstory you can ponder what you would wish for and find out which character you most resemble
