An epic adventure filled with magic and wonder for the entire family based on the classic novel by E. Nesbit. When a family of four children uncover a mysterious egg hidden in the folds of their new carpet, an ancient Phoenix is reborn and powerful magic is unleashed. The children's lives are transformed as they discover the carpet's power to take them anywhere they want and to bring them anything they wish for! Adventures through time and space ensue as the children wish to visit South Sea Islands... but discover wishes are strictly limited! The video also features the Psammead, a magical sand sprite. The 500-year-old Psammead has the magical power to grant wishes, unlike the Phoenix, who is often obliged - albeit reluctantly - to ask it for help.
