    " What i learned from this book is how it is to have a father and then lost him for something that he got blamed on. I liked this book because it thought me something, like when you are really rich and then you became poor again. "

    " A terrific bedtime book, over about 2 weeks. Chaya's favourite at 6 1/2, and has led us into the rest of the Nesbit oeuvre. It starts with the children protagonists' father being mysteriously arrested, and the family abruptly plunged into poverty, which might have seemed frightening, but somehow wasn't. In any case, this was just a device for getting the family out of London and into a country shack where they could experience the full measure of the magical allure of the steam train. Nesbit's children are a marvelous mixture of adventurous, mischievous, and fundamentally decent and responsible. "

    " I loved this book! I think I'd read it before, years ago. All about some children and their mother during Victorian times. Really, really heartwarming. "
