    One thought on “New Treasure Seekers”

    1. one of the wisest pieces of advice i ever received as a child came from this book. i quote:The Constitutions of ClarendonClarendon (sometimes called Clarence) had only one constitution. It must have been a very bad one, because he was killed by a butt of Malmsey. If he had had more constitutions or better ones he would have lived to be very old. This is a warning to everybody sayeth albert-next-door, age 9 (or thereabouts). heed his words, my friends! heed them well, i say!

    2. This book starts off well, although the story gets jumbled up a bit initially as the narrator starts off with the current Christmas celebration and then went back to the first Christmas after Mrs. Bastable died. After that the chapters started to jump back and forth in time until the Bastable children start their journey to Miss Sandal's house by the seaside. Then the fun begins as the Bastable kids innocently get themselves into one stupid adventure after another. Laugh out loud moments abound [...]

    3. The New Treasure Seekers is a collection of short stories starring the Bastable siblings. Some stories are set BEFORE The Story of the Treasure Seekers; some stories are set AFTER The Wouldbegoods. The stories vary in quality, in my opinion. On the one hand, there are a few stories that are truly wonderful. I absolutely adore "The Conscience Pudding," even though the end of the story has a not-so-nice word in it, a product of its time perhaps. I do enjoy Oswald's narration. But reading The New T [...]

    4. The last book featuring the Bastables, and perhaps the weakest in purely narrative flow. I liked it, but was irritated by the time changes, as well as the lack of conclusion. On the bright side, the book comes off better if you take it as a series of stories that might be published in a newspaper. All the children are themselves (thank goodness!) and we get an absolutely priceless story in which Oswald dresses up as a woman. Nesbit knew what it was like to really be a child. And at a time a lot [...]

    5. The book varies in quality as it is closer to a collection of short stories format rather than a single narrative. A few of the stories remain delightful, but you miss the poignancy of The Treasure Seekers or the spirit of The Wouldbegoods. The ending comes on rather abruptly and I blinked quite a few times before realizing the book was definitely coming to an end. However, this remains a pleasant addition to the Bastable Children stories and at best works as a filler rather than as the last boo [...]

    6. I'm not quite sure why I loved this book best of all the Bastable books - maybe because the children are a bit older, and a bit better at doing nice things? Oh God, I'm Dora.Lovely installment by E. Nesbit.

    7. This book was hilarious and I got plenty of good chuckles out of it. The Bastable children are incorrigible and their adventures are original. I enjoyed Oswald's style of narration. I just wish I could have read the other books first.

    8. I'd forgotten HOW hilarious these children are! And the illustrations- perfect- the book wouldn't quite be the same without them.
