The Railway Children
Never out of print since it first appeared in 1906, this timeless story speaks eloquently to young and old alike.
When their beloved father is suddenly and mysteriously taken away from them, Bobby, Peter and Phyllis are caught up in a desperate situation – the more frightening because they do not fully understand it. Uprooted to the country from their house in the London suburbs, they find their lifeline in the nearby railway, which becomes a source of new friends and adventures, and the eventual means of discovering exactly what happened to their father.
‘Her writing is so light and unforced, her humour so sure and her narrative quality so strong … she has given me the most complete satisfaction.’
- Noël Coward
