"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. Theseresourceful 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.

About the Author:

E. 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.

Synopsis:

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.
