The Story of the Amulet - H.R. Millar, E. Nesbit

I wish you could have seen all the honours and kindnesses lavished on the children and the learned gentleman by those ancient Britons. You would have thought, to see them, that a child was something to make a fuss about, not a bit of rubbish to be hustled about the streets and hidden away in the workhouse.


E Nesbit. Not just a good author, but also a damn fine human being.
