The Wouldbegoods; Being the Further Adventures of the Treasure Seekers – E. Nesbit

Children are like jam: all very well in the proper place, but you can’t stand them all over the shop —eh, what?’ These were the dreadful words of our Indian uncle. They made us feel very young and angry; and yet we could not be comforted by calling him names to ourselves, as you do […]

The Story of the Treasure Seekers – E. Nesbit

This is the story of the different ways we looked for treasure, and I think when you have read it you will see that we were not lazy about the looking. 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 […]

The Story of the Amulet – E. Nesbit

There were once four children who spent their summer holidays in a white house, happily situated between a sandpit and a chalkpit. One day they had the good fortune to find in the sandpit a strange creature. Its eyes were on long horns like snail’s eyes, and it could move them in and out like […]

The Rainbow and the Rose – E. Nesbit

NOW that I’ve nearly done my days, And grown too stiff to sweep or sew, I sit and think, till I’m amaze, About what lots of things I know: Things as I’ve found out one by one— And when I’m fast down in the clay, My knowing things and how they’re done Will all be […]

The Railway Children – E. Nesbit

They were not railway children to begin with. I don’t suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook’s, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud’s. They were just ordinary suburban children, and they lived with their Father and Mother in an ordinary red-brick-fronted villa, with coloured […]

The Phoenix and the Carpet – E. Nesbit

It began with the day when it was almost the Fifth of November, and a doubt arose in some breast —Robert’s, I fancy—as to the quality of the fireworks laid in for the Guy Fawkes celebration. ‘They were jolly cheap,’ said whoever it was, and I think it was Robert, ‘and suppose they didn’t go […]

The Magic City – E. Nesbit

Philip Haldane and his sister lived in a little red-roofed house in a little red-roofed town. They had a little garden and a little balcony, and a little stable with a little pony in it—and a little cart for the pony to draw; a little canary hung in a little cage in the little bow-window, […]

The Enchanted Castle – E. Nesbit

There were three of them Jerry, Jimmy, and Kathleen. Of course, Jerry’s name was Gerald, and not Jeremiah, whatever you may think; and Jimmy’s name was James; and Kathleen was never called by her name at all, but Cathy, or Catty, or Puss Cat, when her brothers were pleased with her, and Scratch Cat when […]

The Book of Dragons – E. Nesbit

He happened to be building a Palace when the news came, and he left all the bricks kicking about the floor for Nurse to clear up—but then the news was rather remarkable news. You see, there was a knock at the front door and voices talking downstairs, and Lionel thought it was the man come […]

In Homespun – E. Nesbit

MY cousin Sarah and me had only one aunt between us, and that was my Aunt Maria, who lived in the little cottage up by the church. Now my aunt had a tidy little bit of money laid by, which she couldn’t in reason expect to carry with her when her time came to go, […]

Five Children and It – E. Nesbit

The house was three miles from the station, but, before the dusty hired hack had rattled along for five minutes, the children began to put their heads out of the carriage window and say, “Aren’t we nearly there?” And every time they passed a house, which was not very often, they all said, “Oh, is […]

Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare – E. Nesbit and William Shakespeare

Hermia and Lysander were lovers; but Hermia’s father wished her to marry another man, named Demetrius. Now, in Athens, where they lived, there was a wicked law, by which any girl who refused to marry according to her father’s wishes, might be put to death. Hermia’s father was so angry with her for refusing to […]
