She was most certainly a pip - opinionated, idiosyncratic, courageous, and undeterred by lack of precedent. She basically pioneered the writing of children's books that featured realistic children, honest humor, and respect for young readers. She avoided morals in favor of plain common sense, and she understood that siblings could love and support each other even while bickering. I have no connection at all to the publisher of this book.

The story of Treasure Seekers - is a story of six children, who really admire Kipling and Dickens, go through . Nesbit, of course, wrote The Railway Children and many other children’s books. Nesbit was a follower of William Morris and co-founded the Fabian Society.

The story of Treasure Seekers - is a story of six children, who really admire Kipling and Dickens, go through various adventures to earn money. The reason behind their adventures is the poor financial condition of the family. The story is meant for children; for me - it was not interesting and, at times, was very boring. Her main focus was children’s writing, although she did write some adult novels, short stories, and some horror.

Эдит Несбит The Story of the Treasure Seekers. There are some things I must tell before I begin to tell about the treasure-seeking, because I have read books myself, and I know how beastly it is when a story begins, ‘Alas! said Hildegarde with a deep sigh, we must look our last on this ancestral home ’-and then some one else says something-and you don’t know for pages.

I didn't know what to expect as this was a free book when I downloaded it, but it was very entertaining and had a overall good feel and a very happy ending. The entire story is told by the children, one in particular, and focuses on the children trying to restore the family fortune after they had fallen on bad times. Each child had an idea of how to find treasure or make money and one at a time, the children work together to test out each idea. The stories told really highlight the innocence of children and the importance of allowing children to explore and lead with their imagination, something that I think is lost today with trying to prep children so early for adulthood and responsibility. It was a fun read and the ending put a smile on my face, and I'll admit I did laugh out loud after a few of their antics. Good read!

Point: A true view of a person can be seen when he acts upon what he believes to be true, not necessarily what has been "proved" to be true.

Path: The Bastable children, 6 in total, are in search of restoring the lost fortunes of the good Bastable family name. Their mother died several years earlier, and the business of their father is not good. They each concoct a way in which they believe that they will be able to restore the lost fortunes. Chapter by chapter they each try their ways at encountering treasure. Their full imaginations carry the reader through a world in their minds which is perhaps much more real than the world which I have chosen to see.

Sources: An imagination alive with the fire of youth.

Agreement: The imagination is not a hindrance, or a childish bane. It is the lens through which we see our world, the interpretive grid by which we understand what is beyond.

Personal App: Some of the bravest people in this world are under the age of 10. Those who act nobly upon what they believe, not necessarily what has been proved to be true, are those with real courage. Anyone can walk to the bathroom at night because they have convinced themselves that no one is in the house. But the child who walks stiffly down the hallway when he is convinced that there is a robber in the house, he is the braver.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would have liked to see the ending changed to be more of a recognition of the true fortunes they possessed in their imagination and family. I laughed at parts, nearly cried at others.

So, here it is - a Kindle freebie with loads of positive reviews, but it's from 1899 and you suspect the positive reviews may just be filtered through the gauzy haze of happy childhood reading memories. Is it worth a try? I suggest the answer is "Yes".

Edith Nesbit was not a Victorian novelist with either a tendency toward vapors or an intimidating moralistic streak. She was most certainly a pip - opinionated, idiosyncratic, courageous, and undeterred by lack of precedent. She basically pioneered the writing of children's books that featured realistic children, honest humor, and respect for young readers. She avoided morals in favor of plain common sense, and she understood that siblings could love and support each other even while bickering. There is nothing stodgy about her books except for stodgy things and people she makes a bit of fun of.

Many of her more famous books are fantasies or have an element of "Boy's Own" adventure, but this book could readily be put forth as her funniest. There is broad humor, witty commentary, irony, and dry as dust understatement that readers of many different ages and abilities will pick up on to a greater or lesser degree. While you might expect it, the writing is not terribly formal or complex, just a bit more structured. It would be easy enough even for a younger reader to get into the flow of Nesbit's elegant and engaging, but light and very reader-friendly writing style.

The Bastable kids are good, funny, bright kids. They are also brave and honorable. They have the kid equivalent of style. Even if they do mess up a bit it's usually because they tried to do too much rather than too little. Their conversations, both among themselves and with adults, are as fresh and vivid as though they took place yesterday and any of the Bastables could slip right now into a middle grade school daze novel and fit right in - that's how good Nesbit was.

So, well worth a toss and likely to be a winner.
