Currently re-reading this children's classic from author Edith Nesbit. Although written over 100 years ago, this is still an enchanting tale of 4 children who time-travel, seeking to find the missing half of an Egyptian amulet. I've taken a little inspiration from this for my next children's novel. Edith Nesbit is J.K. Rowling's favourite author. I have loved her writings ever since reading this novel in high school in the 70's, as well as Five Children and It. More recently I have read The Book of Dragons and The Story of the Treasure Seekers.
