Five Children and It - Freddie Hightmore

Five children were sent to an English countryside due to war. While exploring the seaside through a forbidden room, they encountered IT. He's like a genie, except that his wish doesn't last past sundown. This is a hilarious and oftentimes melancholy tale of children and their wishes and the lessons to be learned from it. This is also a book by Edith Nesbit. I'm planning to read it to my children and see how they compare to the movie we just saw via Netflix's instant play.

Tara Fitzgerald ... Mother
Freddie Highmore ... Robert
