Now in paperback, an enchanting tale of time travel and treasure hunting by one of England's finest storytellers.

The famous Arden family treasure has been missing for generations, and the last members of the Arden line, Edred, Elfrida, and their aunt Edith, have nothing to their names but the crumbling castle they live in. Just before his tenth birthday, Edred inherits the title of Lord Arden; he also learns that the missing fortune will be his if—and only if—he can find it before he turns ten. With no time to lose, Edred and Elfrida secure the help of a magical talking creature, the temperamental Mouldiwarp, who leads them on a treasure hunt through the ages. Together, brother and sister visit some of the most thrilling periods of history and test their wits against real witches, highwaymen, and renegades. They find plenty of adventure, but will they find the treasure before Edred’s birthday?

About the Author

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) wrote more than sixty books for children under the name E. Nesbit, including Five Children and It and The Story of the Amulet. Throughout much of her life, Nesbit was at the center of a community of artists and political activists; both she and her husband were founding members, along with George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells, of the Fabian Society, a socialist group with close ties to Britain’s Labour Party.
