    There are three children: Toby, who rides the majestic horse Feste; his mischievous little sister, Linnet; and their brother, Alexander, who plays the flute. The children warmly welcome Tolly to Green Knowe...even though they've been dead for centuries. But that's how everything is at Green Knowe. The ancient manor hides as many stories as it does dusty old rooms. And the master of the house is great-grandmother Oldknow, whose storytelling mizes present and past with the oldest magic in the world.

    The Wouldbegoods, a sequel to The Treasure Seekers, reacquaints us with the six Bastable children: Dora, Oswald, Dicky, Alice, Noël, and H.O. Again, the story is told by you-may-not-know-who, and the children find all sorts of ways in which to amuse themselves in the country during the summer holidays.

    We loved the story and it was well read. Read Treasure Seekers first, it comes before this one.

    When Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother Dani. But tragedy strikes. Annette knows she can never forgive Lucien for what he did to Dani, and she is going to make sure that no one else does either. She is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. But then some surprising things began to happen to both of them.

    Deborah Grand says: "Okay performance of wonderful stories"
    "Sounds like it is underwater"
    Overall

    The book, of course, is wonderful. But, the narrator sounds like she is underwater and we couldn't understand a word she said.

    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.

    This is my favorite Nesbit. I laughed out loud. The kids liked it too. Well read.

    A fabulous way to experience twenty of Shakespeare's thirty-seven plays, this retelling of the stories in prose was originally published just for children. Keeping Shakespeare's own words whenever possible, but making the plots and language easily understandable, this very readable collection has entertained and informed generations of adults as well. It is the ideal primer for anyone interested in becoming familiar with the works of the great bard.

    Twilight Realm says: "Especially good for kids"
    "Great"
    Overall

    We read these for our homeschool program. It is great for the kids to be able to listen to them as well.
    Well read and includes all 20 of the stories from the Lamb's book.

    Ella of Frell wants nothing more than to be free of Lucinda's gift of obedience and feel that she belongs to herself. For how can she truly belong to herself if she knows that at any time, anyone can order her to hop on one foot, cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom, and she'll have to obey?

    Mary A. says: "What a fun twist on the Cinderella Story"
    "Great story"
    Overall

    We loved this story, but the narrator is a little hard to listen to because she sounded so young and somewhat squeaky.

    Introduce your children to the magic of Shakespeare with these 20 favorite tales. Although simplified, these lively stories don't underestimate young readers; they keep the complexity, twists of plot, and turns of fate found in the originals.

    Erica says: "NOT unabridged"
    "NOT unabridged"
    Overall

    This has 10 of the 20 stories from the book. They are very well done, but I was frustrated to get only half of a book when it is supposed to be unabridged.
