Read the story sentence by sentence for the second time 
Page one. 
THE quiet house was quiet no longer! The four children were back from boarding-school, and were even now dragging in their trunks, shouting to one another.    
and were dragging in their trunks is ok. why added even now?

Kiki the parrot joined in the general excitement, of course, and screeched loudly.   

‘New trick,’ said Jack. ‘But wrong foot, old thing. Don’t you know your left from your right yet?’

‘Left, right, left, right, left, right,’ said Kiki at once, and began marking time remarkably well. ‘Left, right, left . . .’                    marking time remarkably well=keeping time exceptionally well or good.

‘He meant to be here to welcome you all,’ said Mrs. Cunningham, Bill’s wife. ‘But he had a sudden ‘phone call this morning, took the car, and went racing off to London all in a hurry.’
Meant  = wanted to?               Why added all in the sentence?   all in a hurry=in a big hurry

 ‘Mother! Shall we unpack down here and take our things up straight away?’ called Dinah. ‘Four trunks lying about the hall leave no room to move.’
 leave mean children put four trunks all over the hall, and then they left.                      about= all over ?            leave= left?

‘Well, it was really Bill’s idea, not mine,’ said Mrs. Cunningham. ‘He just thought it would make a nice change. I was surprised myself when he arranged it.’

‘It’s a place called Little Brockleton,’ said Mrs. Cunningham. ‘Very quiet. In the middle of the country. Just the kind of place you all like. You can mess about in old things all day long.’       mess?????

‘Little Brockleton,’ said Philip. ‘Brock means badger. I wonder if there are badgers there. I’ve always wanted to study badgers. Queer little bear-like beasts.’
Queer little bear-like beasts = strange little bear - like beasts.                queer= strange?
