It's startling enough to have a Phoenix hatch in your house, but even more startling when it reveals you have a magic carpet on the floor. Conceited it may be, but the Phoenix is also good-hearted, and obligingly accompanies the children on their adventures through time and space -- which, magic being what it is, rarely turn out as they were meant.

If you, too, were brought up on E. Nesbit - if you felt as though the Bastable children were personal friends, it would be hard for you to be objective about The Phoenix and the Carpet. But, frankly, it was with a sense of shock that I looked at the old-fashioned, and never attractive, illustrations by J.S. Goodall. The paper and general type layout seem to date with the pictures. And yet the magic of the story is still potent - fantasy done in realistic vein, and enchantment for the imaginative child. I'd hate to have missed it. But there's a hurdle to take in marketing it today. (Kirkus Reviews)
