Adaptation of Edith Nesbit's novel
6 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

Charming adaptation of the Edith Nesbit novel about 5 motherless children in England during the turn of the century trying to help their financially strapped father-inventor who is on the verge of a breakthrough in refrigeration. Initially it appears that everything they try turns into a catastrophe but all their good intentions ultimately pay off and dovetail together. This is one of those rare family friendly films my husband and I can enjoy with the children without fear of bad language, violence, sexual innuendo or political correctness. I would recommend this film very highly. It is purchasable through Questar on 2 video tapes.
