The Railway Children is the classic children’s story by E. Nesbit. When Father is taken away unexpectedly, Roberta, Peter, Phyllis and their mother have to leave their comfortable life in London to go and live in a small cottage in the country. The children seek solace in the nearby railway station, and make friends with Perks the Porter and the Station Master himself. Each day, Roberta, Peter and Phyllis run down the field to the railway track and wave at the passing London train, sending their love to Father. Little do they know that the kindly old gentleman passenger who waves back holds the key to their father’s disappearance. The Railway Children is one of the best-loved classics of all time.

    " The kids and I liked the story well-enough, and I liked the author's tongue in cheek style, though it was hard to read aloud at time because of the British styling. I liked the interactions of the siblings, though they were often a little "too" good. "

    " One of my childhood favourites, where a group of siblings share several adventures when they move to the country. "

    " What a lovely read. I wish I still had kids at home to read aloud to. Takes you back to 1900 England and the pleasant ruminations of turn of the century children. "

    " Even though this one is the only one of Nesbit's I've read that's not fantasy,it's my favourite one. "
