RAILWAY CHILDREN

E. NESBIT    Book Number: 86670    Product format: Paperback

The much-loved classic is a celebration of kindness and hope, by turns sweet and serious. Edith Nesbit was endlessly inventive and breaks your heart with a phrase and makes you laugh at family silliness. Rejacketed with a beautiful illustration of the red flag scene on the railway bridge, this Virago Modern Classic edition has beautiful line drawings by C. E. Brock. When their father is taken away, life changes very suddenly for Roberta, Peter and Phyllis. Unable to afford their London home, the family move to a small country cottage. Hiding their sadness from their mother, the children roam the fields and every morning they wave as the 9.15 train roars past, imagining that it will carry their love to their father, wherever he may be. There is a kind old gentleman passenger who never fails to wave back. Little do the children realise how much his friendship will mean to them, especially in solving the mystery of their father's disappearance. "I dare say Mr Perks's children would like the sweets. And the perambulator was got for my Emmie's first - it didn't live but six months..." 278pp in paperback.
