Four kids (Malleson-Allen, Jenkins, Aufderheide and Siame) are brought together when one family’s father announces that they’re seeing the mother of another family; but then on holiday they meet the mysterious sand fairy, the Psammead (voiced by Caine). The plot is predictable, but the tone is charmingly non-condescending, the kids are endearing and Caine is nicely crotchety.
