When Jerry, Jimmy and Cathy discover a tunnel that leads to a castle, they pretend that it is enchanted. But when they discover a Sleeping Princess at the centre of a maze, astonishing things begin to happen. Amongst a horde of jewels they discover a ring that grants wishes. But wishes granted are not always wishes wanted, so the children find themselves grappling with invisibility, dinosaurs, a ghost and the fearsome Ugli-Wuglies before it is all resolved. This edition of 'The Enchanted Castle' has forty-seven evocative illustrations by H.R. Millar. AUTHOR: The greatest wish of Edith Nesbit (1858 - 1924) was to be remembered as a poet, but her poetry, like much of her adult fiction, is long forgotten. She came to write children's stories in later life, and was a responsible for a string of enduring titles, the most notable being 'The Railway Children'. She has been described as 'the first modern writer for children', although Wordsworth readers have also been introduced to her talents as a writer of supernatural fiction. 47 illustrations
