Coming back to The Wouldbegoods, this book is a part of a three book series on the Bastable children. The Treasure Seekers is the first book in the series, if you are one of those people who can’t bear to jump straight to the second book in any series.

The first and third books are nice but this one is my all time favourite.Among her most popular and successful books are The Wouldbegoods (T Fisher Unwin, ), another story about the Bastables; Five Children and It (T Fisher Unwin, ), the first to introduce the ‘odd-looking creature’ known as the Psammead, and its sequels, The Phoenix and the Carpet (Newnes, ) and The Story of the Amulet (T Fisher Unwin, ); and, of course, The Railway Children.
