Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Afterword by Peter Glassman. "Originally published in 1907, this book concerns four likable English children and their adventures with a magic ring. It's hard to imagine a more appealing showcase for Nesbit's fantasy than this handsome volume....Zelinsky's artwork is as lively as the story and very much of the period....Beautiful."--Booklist. A Books of Wonder Classic.

Synopsis:

An invisible princess, a magic ring, and more adventures than you could dream of. This is what Gerald, Kathleen and Jimmy find when they stumble upon a mysterious castle. At first it all appears to be a lark. But the children soon discover they need all their bravery and ingenuity to contend with the castle's supernatural forces. Exquisite watercolor illustrations.

Amy Houchen, January 2, 2009 (view all comments by Amy Houchen)
Delightful and surprising fantasy--it's worn very well in a century. Not just an enchanted castle, but a magic ring, dinosaurs that move, a princess, secret passages, and more. And it's not just for kids--adults will enjoy it, too, and writers will learn quite a bit about their craft.
