The Treasure Seekers

by E. Nesbit

The exploits of the Bastable children who are attempting to "restore the fallen fortunes" of their family. They come up with a number of rather questionable money-making schemes which they try one after another over a period of several months.

I read this to my children (aged 10 and 14) and we all loved it. It's set in the late 1800s in England and it's very funny. One of the children is telling the story and says that they don't think you'll be able to guess which it is, but my kids thought it was quite funny that you could tell right away.
