Item description for The Wouldbegoods (Junior Classics) by Edith Nesbit...

The Wouldbegoods, a sequel to The Treasure Seekers, reacquaints us with the six Bastable children: Dora, Oswald, Dicky, Alice, Noel and H.O. Again, the story is told by you-may-not-know-who, and the children find all sorts of ways in which to amuse themselves in the country during the summer holidays. 'Children are like jam,' says the Indian uncle, 'all very well in the proper place, but you can't stand them all over the shop - eh, what?' Well, the children do their best, but they do get themselves into trouble - right from the beginning, when their latest brainwave is to create a jungle in the garden...

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wouldbegoods (Junior Classics)?

She "gets" children  Feb 24, 2008
We have read all of E. Nesbit's books aloud. My kids generally remark how well she "gets" kids. Her stories are timeless and usually involve children who want to be good and yet find that it isn't always easy. A very pleasant read.
