We have to leave our house in London, Mother said to the children. We're going to live in the country, in a little house near a railway line. And so begins a new life for Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis. They become the railway children - they know all the trains, Perks the station porter is their best friend, and they have many adventures on the railway line. But why has their father had to go away? Where is he, and will he ever come back?

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Edith Nesbit original by John Escott.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 8/9/2012

    " I did enjoy the book (and the film) but wasn't so keen on the extra bits where the Author spoke about herself in the middle of the story e.g. saying how she was going to start calling Roberta Bobbie as the others did, and other bits where I represented the Author. "

    " I saw there is a play in Toronto based on this book and realized I had never read it . It is a childrens classic and I didn't want to miss out. It is quite entertaining so far "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 4/23/2011

    " This was very cute and a fun classic read that I hadn't ever picked up before. It is set in England and originally published in the early 1900s so some of the customs and expressions were a challenge to understand but entertaining at the same time. "

    " More than the film the book gets me everytime. Each time I read it to my children almost every chapter would cause my voice to catch in my throat. "

    " "Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing? If I were writing a book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right---in a way that's best for us." Mother to Peter p192 "
