Edred and Elfrieda Arden belong to an ancient noble family which has fallen on hard times. Orphaned and living with their aunt who takes in lodgers at the seaside, life is dull and frustrating. But when Edred suddenly inherits the title of Lord Arden - and a medieval ruined castle to go with it, the adventures are only just starting. The children discover a magic spell through which they meet the Mouldiwarp - a white mole who is also the emblem of the Ardens. They learn of a hidden treasure and discover powerful magic which allows them to travel back into the past to seek for it. One adventure follows another, as they encounter smugglers, highwaymen, plotters, prisoners in the tower, kings and witches... until finally they discover the treasure, which turns out not to be what they had expected - but much much better.

    " Really cute children's book that reminded me of Half-Magic. "

    " Different from the Treasure Seekers but so enjoyable. Very magical. I wish we had more children's authors that wrote like this today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Raby | 10/2/2013

    " Although sometimes the form of the language that they use is different from today's and can be difficult to understand, it still had a very interesting plot and climax. "

    " Sweet. I wish my house had a secret room behind a panel. "

    " This is a cute book, but I did like the Treasure Seekers better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amelia | 3/23/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It took me back to the kinds of stories I enjoyed so much as a kid. One slight downside was that I knew from the start what was going to happen at the end, and one subplot that didn't resolve, and probably could have. It was a sweet story despite that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 12/18/2012

    " I enjoyed the stories with the time travel but the authors prose is a bit dated. But the book is over one hundred years old and still a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharri | 9/2/2012

    " Wow, another fun book from the NY Review Children's Collection! My favorite so far in the collection. Written in 1907 so 100 years ago, but the style is contemporary and the plot is darling. Reminds me of Edward Eager's children's books (eg, Half Magic). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fang Mcgee | 8/17/2012

    " Entertaining by turns but the overall narrative is choppy and oddly concluded. "
