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.

Sounds great! I need to read more time-travel books, I think.

Nesbit was a friend of H.G. Wells- the original time travel man. Relations became a little strained when Wells
attempted to elope with Nesbit's daughter.
