Haha JunkMonkey I did laugh at this from your Palimplist:

Quote:
The Wonderful Garden by E Nesbit - bedtime read for Number Two Daughter that, at one point, had me in the hysterical giggles. Ms Nesbit was a very funny writer. The book is, as far as I can tell, long out of print. I am not ashamed to say I stole my copy, a possible first edition, from a restaurant where it was being used as a bit of 'shabby chic' set decoration.
Brilliant move, I'd say. I don't know this one but my eldest boy laughed himself silly when we read The Treasure Seekers and Five Children & It.

Hah! On the above recommendations, I downloaded, from Gutenberg, E Nesbit's Treasure Seekers, which has proved a great success with Beryl and me... and we are, as most here know, of the septuagenarian persuasion. Thanks, JM and vencut2.
