The Enchanted Castle was published five years after Five Children and It. It seemed to me that Five Children was written for younger children, and The Enchanted Castle was the same basic story filled out to nearly 300 pages, written for older children. Five Children was funnier, but The Enchanted Castle has more depth to it, and is still a good read. I recommend it to pre-teens only if they're already familiar with British literature, as some of the concepts and terms might be unfamiliar to them. Adults will like it too. It raises a couple good questions: if you could turn invisible, what would you do? If you could have any wish, what would it be?

I actually bought this thinking is was about the hidden garden and the little boy that grows strong because of it. Its NOT that one.

I found this book delightful, and laughed out loud at some parts.

This is a fanciful book full of fun adventures. I found it funny that the children had such a hard time keeping track of the enchanted ring. I liked the adventures with the Ugli-Wugli's and the living statues the best. I was glad it had a fairy tale ending with a lord and lady.

Great book for pre teens. It reminds me of the Narnia books.

For all that this Edith Nesbitt wrote around a century ago, I find the humor in her books and her grasp of human foibles delightful. I never knew about Nesbitt until I was an adult and married, but I have greatly enjoyed reading them.

Another magical tale by E. Nesbit, author of the "Five Children" adventures. Typically British in tone, this book is about children who come across a "castle" held by a "princess" (really just a stately home with a rich inhabitant) and their "magical" adventures. A fun read, though the British-ness of the dialogue and situations (where is the nanny of these children, as the parents definitely aren't in the story?) takes some getting used to.

Waking up a princess from her 100 year nap is not always what it seems. Three children find out it is only Mable the maid, but somehow actual enchantment is in the whole thing and magical problems arise.
