A Peter Glassman book. Summary, et. The six Bastable children try to restore their family's fortune using a variety of schemes taken from books, including finding buried treasure, rescuing someone from bandits, and starting a newspaper. Geographic Name: Great Britain History 19th century Fiction. leave here couple of words about this book: Tags: Belgium.

Published in 1899, The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E Nesbit was her first children's novel. Others like CS Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia) and many other British and American writers were inspired by The Story of the Treasure Seekers. Told from a child's point of view, the style is witty, amusing and interesting, making it the ideal read-aloud book for both parents and children

The story of Treasure Seekers - is a story of six children, who really admire Kipling and Dickens, go through various adventures to earn money. The reason behind their adventures is the poor financial condition of the family. The story is meant for children; for me - it was not interesting and, at times, was very boring. And moreover, there is no treasure hunt in the book, though initially the children start as treasure seekers. As I said above, I thought this book was charming & I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! Having two kids of my own, I had had some experience with E. Nesbit - most particularly, we had listened to an audiobook of The Railway Children years ago on a driving trip. In some ways, I think I enjoyed it more than kids did. Nesbit's stories are so rooted in time and place - childhood in Victorian England - that reading them is a window into the past.

TO OSWALD BARRON Without whom this book could never have been written. The Treasure Seekers is dedicated in memory of childhoods identical but for the accidents of time and space.

Nesbit (1858-1924) lived in England and had dreamed of becoming a poet since she was fifteen years old. After her husband fell ill, it was up to her to support her small family. For the next nineteen years, she published a number of novels, essays, articles, poems, and short stories. When The Story of the Treasure Seekers was published in 1899, her groundbreaking style of depicting realistic, believable children quickly gained a popularity that has lasted for more than a century. That struck a chord with me. The Story of the Treasure Seekers was a breakthrough children's book. But she is more than that.

"This is the story of the different ways we looked for treasure..."

When their mother dies and their father's business partner runs off with most of their money, the six intrepid Bastable children are determined to restore their family's fallen fortunes. These resourceful children squabble, make up, and have many memorable adventures, from publishing their own newspaper to foiling a pair of real bandits and even becoming kidnappers themselves. But while the efforts of the Bastables are often ingenious, their good intentions always go hilariously awry. This lively, funny story perfectly captures these children's remarkable bravery and deep sense of honor. First published in 1899, this children's classic is available again for a new generation of readers with a magnificent cover illustration by Caldecott winner Paul O. Zelinsky.

This book, and the two others about the same children (The Would-be-goods and the New Treasure Seekers) are excellent. I read them for the first time as a grown-up, based on the fact that I read that it was a favorite of J K Rowling. And I can see why she likes it so well. The characters are very well written, you can feel you really know them, they are real, not just paper, two-dimensional characters like so many books have, esp. books for kids.

As a parent, I found myself laughing out loud at the interactions between these clever and industrious set of siblings. I can't understand why this book isn't more well-known. But maybe it's marketing. I tried reading it to my 9 year old boy and he wasn't interested. Then I gave it to my 15-year-old boy and he was LOL. Though the stories are about kids, I think you enjoy them more as you're getting older and can laugh at the antics of kids.
