The Story of the Amulet

E. Nesbit

Book Description

"The Story of the Amulet" by E. Nesbit follows the adventures of siblings Cyril, Anthea, Robert, and Jane as they discover a magical amulet that allows them to time travel. The children are entrusted with the amulet by a mysterious Egyptian called the "Psammead," a creature with the power to grant wishes. Hoping to use its magic to improve their family's financial situation, the children embark on a series of journeys to the past. Their first stop is ancient Egypt, where they befriend a young pharaoh named Amasis. They then travel to Babylon and experience the reign of Queen Semiramis. Despite their initial excitement, the children face challenges and dangerous situations during their travels. While trying to return to their own time, they encounter the Psammead once more and learn about the amulet's true nature. They realize that the amulet's magic depends on the goodness of their hearts, not just their wishes. The children must make difficult choices to prove their worthiness and ensure they can return home. In the end, they return to their own time, having learned valuable lessons about responsibility, empathy, and the importance of family bonds. The amulet's power is lost, but the experiences they gained remain as cherished memories of their extraordinary adventures. This book is copyright free and can be downloaded for free.
