Six children decide that the only way to restore the fortunes of their family is to go out and do it themselves.

They produce a series of madcap schemes and one after another try them out with varying degrees of success, most resulting in trouble rather than riches. But then one scheme begins to look more promising than the rest.

Listener Opinions

    " A brilliant tale. It was made of the same stuff as Neverland. Cleverly written as if written by Oswald. A well crafted usage and stretching of correlation and causation to bring great adventures out of otherwise ordinary days. The book was one of the funnest reads I've had for a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/14/2014

    " Though I thought Nesbit's realistic depiction of children was dead on (the fighting, bickering, making up, playing, imagining, etc.) I sometimes found myself wondering, just how many adventures are these kids going to have? Maybe it's the "adult" in me, lol. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 HannahBeth | 2/3/2014

    " Had to send it back to the library before I was done...definitely plan on finishing it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie Basham | 1/30/2014

    " Just finished reading this aloud. It was excellent! We learned several new vocabulary words and laughed and laughed! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mara | 1/22/2014

    " This was probably more appealing a century ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Caneday | 1/21/2014

    " I listened to the Librivox recording of this. I loved the story--it was fun, funny, uplifting, and rewarding. Nesbit is a gifted writer and this is really more of an adult book than a kid's book. There is simply too much adult humor that kids would miss. But I suppose older kids would still enjoy it. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon | 1/19/2014

    " A delight, but with reservations. Unexpected burst of humourous writing from E Nesbit. Touches of jerome K Jerome. There are chapters that need a snip here and there and the conceit is not fully realised. It is, nonetheless, a gem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/18/2014

    " Laugh out loud funny. Fantastic family read aloud! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/15/2014

    " Another excellent written adventure with Nesbit's children. Make sure you find a child to read this to! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley Daugherty | 1/8/2014

    " What a fun book! This book might not appeal to all readers because it is a historical fiction but it gives a great look into the lives of children during the Romamtic time period. Because the narrator is a child, this is a delightful read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 1/6/2014

    " these are michevious little kids! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 12/19/2013

    " again, an audio book listen in the car. this was delightful fun - lots of funnies that only adults will get. sort of in the same line as A Little Princess. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucia M. | 12/9/2013

    " This is one of my absolute FAVORITE books ever! Set in England, as most of E. Nesbit's books are, it is about children who are seeking treasure--in many ways. They find it at long last, and are quite surprised at what it turns out to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/17/2013

    " We simply adore Nesbit - great for the adults, who catch all the subtle british humor, fun for the kids. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 11/1/2012

    " This book frustrated me. It was written part in first person and part in third by someone pretending to be another character. Very odd. The story was fine enough although I did find the children a little insufferable towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 9/8/2012

    " I didn't think I could love a family of Edwardian children as much as I did Anthea, Cyril, Robert, and Jane, but the noble House of Bastable reigns supreme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karie Anne | 1/14/2012

    " So far it's a cute book I wouldn't mind reading to Johnny at some point! Then again, I loved the Boxcar Children series as a kid, and this is indeed Edith Nesbit, a forerunner in the world of such stories! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sho | 9/26/2011

    " A classic by one of the best children's writers ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neo | 6/5/2011

    " Just a good old-fashioned read about children who didn't mind getting dirty and didn't sit at home playing video games all day. Told with the flavor of children seeking adventure and not understanding any of the crummier parts of life. Nobility and mischief. What's not to love? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 5/28/2011

    " This is a fun, light read with an amusing "between the lines" story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrieuoregon | 5/9/2011

    " I love E. Nesbit. She is my friend. I've read this, but hadn't recorded it, so I am recording the re-read. The Bastables (all 6) are awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krisette | 7/11/2009

    " Precious, precious, precious. This is the story of the six Bastable children, and their attempts to raise their family fortune. They try everything from becoming highwaymen to digging for treasure. It was published in 1899, which makes it even more fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trine | 6/3/2009

    " This is just the kind of children's story I like. A lot of children with a lot of spunk and imagination and a happy ending. I am sorry I haven't come across it sooner to read to my children, but there is still time to introduce it to my grandchildren. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 4/29/2009

    " Oh, but they're just so wonderfully resourceful! And the way in which everything goes awry makes for the loveliest read. :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 4/27/2009

    " Another book by Nesbit about children and how they try to solve problems and find adventure along the way. All of her stories remind me of my childhood and my own adventures (though they were not quite as exciting)and I believe that is the top reason I enjoy them so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sus | 4/3/2009

    " Oh, man. I love Edith Nesbit. "
