"I love E. Nesbit too, and I think I have learned a lot from her about how to write stories of this kind." ~C.S. Lewis
The six Bastable children used to be rich, but then their mother passed away and their father's business partner ran away with their money. Now the children must restore the fallen fortunes of their house by looking for treasure. Whether they are selling poetry, becoming bandits, making medicine, saving a rich old man from deadly peril, or even just digging for treasure, the Bastables must all learn something that’s even more important than buried gold.
