THE ENCHANTED CASTLE
by E Nesbitt
Edith Nesbitt mastered the art of writing captivating children's books. This book is my second of hers and thoroughly enjoyable. Cathy and her brothers, Jerry and Jimmy, find themselves spending the holidays at Cathy's school. While exploring one day, they come upon a sleeping princess who turns out to be a young girl named Mabel. Mabel is the niece of the housekeeper of the enchanted castle. The four children find a magic ring which leads to all kinds of imaginative adventures. The children experience invisibility, becoming rich, statutes coming alive in the moonlight, and rag and stick people who come to live. I love how the four children follow the rules of polite society of the 1900's. They are so young and so proper. This is truly an enchanting tale that will delight children and adults alike.
