Publisher's Summary

All six Bastable children - Dora, Oswald, Dicky, Alice, Noel and Horace Octavius - are ambitious adventurers, digging detectives and intrepid treasure seekers by nature. Unfortunately, the Bastable family is currently facing an uncertain financial future. When father takes ill, and his business partners abandon him, the six children team up in an effort to restore their family’s wealth. Although they devise some ingenious escapades, their efforts usually end up unprofitable but fun - and sometimes their digging gets downright dangerous. But one day their adventure leads them to completely unexpected results. Author E. Nesbit’s classic children’s stories have entertained countless readers since their original publication over 100 years ago. With Simon Prebble’s exceptional narration this marvelously written tale shines as brightly as gold coins.

Fun and Engaging Book

My children and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It helped a lot to listen and read text simultaneously, for proper pronunciation and understanding (since we are American).

Grate narration, slow moving story

The narration was awesome the story was very Charming but at times it seemed very slow and it seems that we would lose track of what was happening due to that. We did finish it and we're happy with the ending. In some ways I think this would better read rather than listen to.
