When Jerry, Jimmy and Cathy discover a tunnel that leads to a castle, they pretend that it is enchanted.

Amongst a horde of jewels they discover a ring that grants wishes.

Review by wyvernfriend
An interesting kids book with fun interjections by the author about life and how things work. These three siblings find an enchanted castle during their summer holidays and then find a magical ring. While they have fun they also learn about responsibility.It's extrememly dated but it is fun.
Review by Mialro
Lovely story, very much an old-fashioned fairytale. You can definitely see how her style influenced C.S. Lewis.
