E. Nesbit ´ 7 FREE DOWNLOAD SUMMARY ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ E. Nesbit FREE DOWNLOAD The Story of the Treasure Seekers 107 A legendary children's story of sibling adventure by the enchanting author of The Railway Children and Five Children and It which has delighted countless generations of childrenThe Bastable children Dora Oswald Dicky Alice Noel and Horace Octavius HO live. E Nesbit did not write for children Oh yes I uite enjoyed Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet and so on when I was a child they re magnificent children s books But listening to the Librivox recording of The Story of the Treasure Seekers makes it very very clear that the magnificent Ms Nesbit had very firmly in mind the parents who would be reading the books aloud at bedtime One beautiful example is a scene in which an adult abruptly rises from his seat and walks away to stand at the window with his back to the children in his office The narrator says he believes the man was trying to conceal his emotions Which is very true the emotions however were not what the narrator thought But the narrator and any child reading or listening who has utter faith that all is just as the narrator perceives it may believe one thing the beautiful layer of comedy in the moment is reserved for the grown ups Thank goodness we get something in almost everything else the children are the fortunate ones The Bastable children possess an innocence which I m very much afraid is impossible for even a twelve year old today I ve seen comments out there amongst the reviews about imperialist overtones and casual racism Thing is though this was first published in 1899 and like it or not the world was a very different place then and as I read it even what could be considered racist has an innocence that keeps it from being offensive The children are given to understand that a visitor is an Indian and fed on adventure novels assume Amerind and ask him about beavers He s India Indian though and has no information on such creatures I honestly don t see how the children s honest excitement about and sympathy for someone from far away who describes himself as a poor broken down fellow which they also take literally can be translated as racist especially in 1899 and the one extremely unfortunate exclamation the same as is found in LM Montgomery s A Tangled Web was sadly a much common epithet a hundred years ago These are the sort of fictional children that make me despair over today s kids imaginative well read well spoken thoughtful under the childish self centeredness and self sufficient they make today s kids American at least look like Neanderthals They re not perfect little angels E Nesbit was never stupid But they do set a ludicrously high standard Were kids really like that in the 19th century Probably not But my guess is they were closer to it Dora the eldest at 13 or 14 comes off as a bit of a prig though this is dealt with in a later chapter in such a way that it made me cry desperately trying to maintain some moral high ground in a horde of siblings who think it would be absolutely smashing if there were still highwaymen on the heath or even better if they could be highwaymen on the heath Her objection is that it s wrong as in illegal and people hang for such things not so much as in the victims of the highwaymen didn t think it was uite so smashing The again innocent bloodthirstiness of the kids is remarkable and just fun Oswald the oldest boy at 12 and you might guess or you might not the narrator of the story is very nearly as brave and honourable as he wants to appear and very straightforward It s rather lovely to see him reluctantly realistically doing the right thing throughout the book proceeding uietly and alone when practical the older ones all do that shouldering responsibility and striving to make things right when they go wrong The fierce affection and loyalty among the siblings is like their father s poverty and worries never explicitly stated it doesn t have to be It is shown not told The four younger children Noel and Alice and HO and Dickie ranging down to I believe six years old are every one expected by their elder siblings to be just as sharp and responsible and willing and able to contribute as Oswald and Dora Some allowances are made for their extreme youth but for the most part they are eual partners in the treasure seeking receiving an eual share in any profits though sometimes excused by protective siblings from punishments I don t remember E Nesbit reducing me to tears in the past This did And yes I laughed out loud I missed the magic element of some of the other books but only at first It didn t take long to realize that most of the magic of E Nesbit s writing is actually in E Nesbit s writing To that point No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not eually and often far worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond CS Lewis I look forward to reading E
