The House of Arden is a novel for children written by Edith Nesbit and first published in 1908.

The book tells us the story of a boy named Edred Arden, who inherits the noble title of Lord Arden and Arden Castle, which is totally deteriorated and in ruins.

Along with his sister, they will embark on the adventure of finding the lost treasure of Ardens and with the invaluable help of the magical Mouldiwarp they will find clues about the whereabouts of said treasure.

Through time travel, they will visit different historical periods such as Napoleon's invasion of the United Kingdom, the gunpowder plot in the Tower of London or the celebration of May Day with Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII.

This makes it a very educational book and widely read in schools by children, as it covers different historical periods in an entertaining and fun way.

Even in the final part they will take a trip to a lost civilization in South America, inspired by legends such as that of El Dorado.

A sequel named Harding's Luck was published in 1909.

The best The House of Arden quotes
