* ''Literature/TheStoryOfTheTreasureSeekers'' (and sequels)

* TheAllConcealingI: Attempted by the narrator of ''The Story of the Treasure Seekers'', not very effectively; the narrator is a child and is only concealing their identity as a game for the reader. * AuthorAvatar: In-universe in ''The Story of the Treasure-Seekers'': when the kids are alternating chapters of a serial story, Noel names the hero "Noeloninuris". When Oswald gets a chapter, he [[RetCon retcons]] the name to "Osrawalddo".

* NarratorAllAlong: PlayedForLaughs in ''The Story of the Treasure Seekers''. The narrator keeps praising one of the main characters as being so clever and brave, and how it isn't his fault when things go wrong. Then the narrator begins forgetting to use the grammatical third person... * NurseWithGoodIntentions: In ''The Story of the Treasure Seekers'', the kids decide they want to invent medicine. So they try goofing around in the cold until one of them gets sick. Eventually, one of them does and they try to give him all sorts of medicines...but none work and he just gets worse. Needless to say, the adult who discovers this mess is not amused.

* RelativeError: In ''The Wouldbegoods''; lampshaded by the narrator. -->He might have known it was her brother, because in rotten grown-up books if a girl kisses a man in a shrubbery that is not the man you think she's in love with; it always turns out to be a brother. * ShoutOut: In ''The Wouldbegoods'' there's a scene in which the children attempt to act out part of ''Literature/TheJungleBook''. It's worth noting that ''The Wouldbegoods'' was published just five years after ''The Jungle Book''.

* UnreliableNarrator: The narrator of ''The Story of the Treasure Seekers'' and its sequels.

* TakenForGranite: Kathleen in ''The Enchanted Castle'' is turned into marble after carelessly wishing she was a statue (because statues are cool - temperature-wise, that is). She remains conscious, but doesn't seem to mind too much. Later inverted when a whole bunch of statues come to life, Kathleen among them, though they're all animate marble rather than flesh and blood.
