New Treasure Seekers. By E. Nesbit. (T. Fisher Unwin. 6s.)

— New Treasure Seekers is a continuation of a book bearing the same title that has already won considerable and well-deserved favour. The " Seekers " have nothing to do with pirates' hoards, or stolen bullion and notes, or even the treasure which certain enterprising journalists hide in suburban gardens,—would not this last serve for the theme of a story ? We have a number of sketches of the sayings of the Bastable family,—i.e., of the junior portion of them. There are explorers among them, and smugglers, and unlicensed hawkers, and they are very amusing people, whom we are glad to meet again.
