Publisher's Summary

All six Bastable children - Dora, Oswald, Dicky, Alice, Noel and Horace Octavius - are ambitious adventurers, digging detectives and intrepid treasure seekers by nature. Unfortunately, the Bastable family is currently facing an uncertain financial future. When father takes ill, and his business partners abandon him, the six children team up in an effort to restore their family’s wealth. Although they devise some ingenious escapades, their efforts usually end up unprofitable but fun - and sometimes their digging gets downright dangerous. But one day their adventure leads them to completely unexpected results. Author E. Nesbit’s classic children’s stories have entertained countless readers since their original publication over 100 years ago. With Simon Prebble’s exceptional narration this marvelously written tale shines as brightly as gold coins.

Fun and Engaging Book

My children and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It helped a lot to listen and read text simultaneously, for proper pronunciation and understanding (since we are American).

This was a delightful story from yester-year.

each chapter was a joy to read, and the narrator was splendid. I'll read it again soon and I definitely recommend it to you!

Great story for kids (and adults)

Such an endearing story. The perspective from the children's eyes is fantastic. They are right: grown ups do say and do all those things! The children's innocence and imaginations are refreshing. Loved it and highly recommended it! <3
