About this Recording

NESBIT, E.: Wouldbegoods (The) (Abridged)

The Wouldbegoods, a sequel to The Treasure Seekers, reacquaints us with the six Bastable children: Dora, Oswald, Dicky, Alice, Noël and H.O. Again, the story is told by you-may-not-know-who, and the children find all sorts of ways in which to amuse themselves in the country during the summer holidays. ‘Children are like jam,’ says the Indian uncle, ‘all very well in the proper place, but you can’t stand them all over the shop—eh, what?’ Well, the children do their best, but they do get themselves into trouble—right from the beginning, when their latest brainwave is to create a jungle in the garden…
