The House Of Arden: E Nesbit [Jan. 3rd, 2016|09:55 am]
Tony Grist
Time travel into the English past, a brother and sister who fight just like real kids do, an endearing bad-tempered magical creature- the Mouldiwarp- who speaks in a broad Sussex accent, a witch who is sorely misunderstood but beneficent, a narrative that jogs along from adventure to adventure in a manner that strongly suggests Nesbit is making it up as she goes along...

It has a sequel- Harding's Luck- and that's what I'm going to read next.

Ooh, I've not read this one; it can't have been among the blue cloth bound hardbacks belonging to one of my parents.

It's a good'un. I've got a big fat Nesbit anthology on my Kindle.

(Here from the friends FL)

A question, if I may- does the Kindle keep the illustrations?

Yes, it does. And aren't they good!

Definitely. I can't see Edred and Elfrida any other way.
