It?s their school holidays, and Jerry, Jimmy, and Kathleen are spending the day in the woods. While exploring, they chance upon a cave which leads them to an enchanted castle where they meet a princess. Join them as the princess takes them inside the castle and shows them the magical treasures. A fantasy novel for children, Nesbit?s the Enchanted castle is enjoyed by both children and adults alike.

About the Author Born in Kennington, Surrey, England, on August 15, 1858, Edith Nesbit spent her childhood travelling between Brighton, Germany, France, Spain, and Buckinghamshire with her family. The Nesbits later settled in Halstead, Kent, which would be an inspiration for her children’s novel The Railway Children. Nesbit’s writing career began in the early 1880s. A prolific writer with an interest in socialism, she is considered one of the earliest modern writers for children. Nesbit published almost forty children’s books including picture books, novels, and short story collections. The Story of the Treasure Seekers (1899), The Wouldbegoods (1901), The Revolt of the Toys (1902), The Railway Children (1906), and The Enchanted Castle (1907) are among her best-known works in children’s literature. Nesbit breathed her last on May 4, 1924. Her works continue to be widely read and appreciated.
