    " Although this is aimed for children, it shouldn't stop you reading it as an adult, it's well worth it. "

    " Interesting book, about some children who lived near a railway. Great story "

    " I'll be honest: I couldn't stand this book. It was basically a riches-to-rags clumsily written cliche. Also, it drives me crazy how the railway station is so meaningful and important when it's only visited, like, twice in the entire 188 pages. I went to the Brooklyn Public Library but people don't call me 'The Library Child'. I visited the Whitney Musem but people don't call me 'The Museum Child'. In truth, I have little patience for E. Nesbit, though she is considered one of the greatest writers for children of all time. "

    " Enjoyable but very old fashioned. Close to the film with a few new storylines. Enjoyed the film in this case more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettie | 1/17/2014

    " The editions on GR are marked with a publishing date of 1978 and should indicate 1906. "

    " I remember reading this at a young age and being delighted in the action and mystery Now after reading it again I can look back, and see these books as predecessors of the Lemony Snicket stories. Not quite as depressing but just as entertaining! Fun reading for any youngster, no matter what the age. "

    " Re-read this lovely classic after a long time. Written in a charming manner about a bygone era from Children's POV. It was a pleasure to read in Puffin Classic paperback. "

    " Written in a similar style to C.S. Lewis, but very predictable and not much of a plot. "
