This one is a bit darker than the others. After all, mother is sick and father is going off to war (it sounds like WWI). It was interesting to see the growth in the boys and the conflict between them and Anthea. I was absolutely disgusted with Jane, who seems to have regressed in age and behavior, but then I decided that it was part of the genius of Nesbit for, after all, don't children react that way when they become stressed? It didn't really change my irritation at her, but I tolerated her whining after that.

I think the end was a bit interesting, different than her others. Was that a sly jab at magical tricks? It was a nice ending to a clever series. ( )

I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a kid. ( )

Typical Nesbit fun, but weighed down a by her Fabianism - it got a bit didactic at times. But it was still a fun read, and I enjoyed her take on the complications of time travel. ( )

This time the children from "Five Children and It" and "The Phoenix and the Carpet" are traveling through time with the help of a magic amulet. As always, E. Nesbit is a wonderful storyteller, and the children's adventures are interesting and amusing. They travel back 8000 years, visit Babylon, see the destruction of Atlantis, meet Julius Caesar, as well as other adventures, all in order to get their heart's desire, which was the quick return of their parents from a trip away from home. A lovely book. ( )

In The Story of the Amulet Nesbit's powers of invention are at their best. It is a time machine story, only the device is not a machine but an Egyptian amulet whose other half is lost in the past. By saying certain powerful words, the amulet becomes a gate through which the children are able to visit the past or future. Pharaonic Egypt, Babylon (whose dotty queen comes back to London with them and tries to get her personal possessions out of the British Museum), Caesar's Britain: they visit them all in the search for the missing part of the amulet.

Nesbit's history is good. And there is even a look at a Utopian future, which turns out to be everything a good Fabian might have hoped for. Ultimately, the amulet's other half is found, and a story of considerable beauty is concluded in a most unexpected way.

No one said a word about it to anyone else. I think I have explained before that business men do not like it to be known that they have been dreaming in business hours. Especially mad dreams including such dreadful things as hungry people getting dinners, and the destruction of the Stock Exchange.
'You'll have a revolt of your slaves if you're not careful,' said the Queen.

'Oh, no,' said Cyril; 'you see they have votes—that makes them safe not to revolt. It makes all the difference. Father told me so.'

'What is this vote?' asked the Queen. 'Is it a charm? What do they do with it?'

'I don't know,' said the harassed Cyril; 'it's just a vote, that's all! They don't do anything particular with it.'

'I see,' said the Queen; 'a sort of plaything.'
