Jimmy, Gerald, and Cathy hope to find adventure when they set off to explore the woods, but they get far more than they bargained for when they discover the Enchanted Castle. At first, they seem to be in a fairy tale come true, until a friend turns invisible, thanks to a magic ring she can’t remove. Adventure follows adventure as they seek to control the magic—but the magic has a will of its own, and it is all they can do to keep up. Faced with sleeping princesses, magic rings, and moonlit gardens filled with magic, the children must use all their courage and ingenuity to control the magic and solve the mystery surrounding the Enchanted Castle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The popular British author’s adventures of childhood have always been good read-aloud choices; the audiobook format superbly showcases them.”

    AudioFile

  • “[Nesbit] was able to create a world of magic and inverted logic that was entirely her own…There is something strange about [The Enchanted Castle] which sets it off…The mood is midnight. Statues of dinosaurs come alive in the moonlight, the gods of Olympus hold a revel, Pan’s song is heard…It is the sort of nightmare that might have occurred to a highstrung child, perhaps to Nesbit herself. And one must remember that a nightmare in those days was a serious matter for a child who had no electric light to switch on when a bad dream awakened him; he must continue in darkness, the shadows that menaced him undispelled.”

    Gore Vidal

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jenny | 2/19/2014

    " Cute children's book. Not on par with "The Secret Garden" or anything, but it's a cute little read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Varsha Seshan | 2/16/2014

    " While I enjoyed the essence of the story, I found that it dragged on for too long. Towards the end, I found myself skipping larger and larger sections because it was predictable anyway. "

    " Was there ever any children's writer better than E. Nesbit? I enjoy her just as much (if not more) as an adult as I did when I was a child. Her characters are so real, and I love the way her magic is never straightforward. Enchanting: no better word for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rachel Kopel | 2/11/2014

    " Perfect summer reading. Enough suspense to keep me interested, but not to leave me afraid. Always another adventure for the children and the ring. Even though it was fairly clear who would be together at the end, how we got there, and the delightful adventures along the way made for a very nice weekend read. "
