Edith Nesbit - The House of Arden
The famous Arden family treasure has been missing for generations, and
the last members of the Arden line, Edred, Elfrida, and their Aunt
Edith, have nothing to their names but the crumbling castle they live
in. Just before his tenth birthday, Edred inherits the title of Lord
Arden; he also learns that the missing fortune will be his if—and only
if—he can find it before the turns ten. With no time to lose, Edred and
Elfrida secure the help of a magical talking creature, the temperamental
Mouldiwarp, who leads them on a treasure hunt through the ages.
Together, brother and sister visit some of the most thrilling periods of
history and test their wits against real witches, highwaymen, and
renegades. They find plenty of adventure, but will they find the
treasure before Edred’s birthday?
Probably one of the best children's books ever written!
