This is an American classic about four children who are sent to stay with an elderly friend of their parents.

About the Author:

EDWARD EAGER (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing children's stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954. In each of his books he carefully acknowledges his indebtedness to E. Nesbit, whom he considered the best children's writer of all time--"so that any child who likes my books and doesn't know hers may be led back to the master of us all."
