ABOUT THE BOOK

"The Railway Children" by Edith Nesbit, originally serialized in 1905 and later published as a children's book, follows a family moving to "The Three Chimneys" near a railway after the father is falsely accused of espionage. The children Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis befriend an old gentleman who helps prove their father's innocence, leading to a heartwarming reunion. Inspired by walks to Grove Park nature reserve, the story intertwines themes of friendship, justice, and compassion. It possibly draws influence from the Dreyfus Affair and features a Russian exile, symbolizing real-life dissidents. The book also references the Russo-Japanese War, placing its setting in 1905.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924), also known as E. Nesbit, was an English writer and poet who captivated young readers with her children's books.  Settling in Halstead, Kent, later became the inspiration for her beloved novel "The Railway Children." Nesbit began her writing career in the early 1880s and gained recognition as one of the earliest modern writers for children. Her extensive repertoire includes almost forty children's books, encompassing picture books, novels, and short stories. Popular works like "The Story of the Treasure Seekers," "The Wouldbegoods," "The Revolt of the Toys," and "The Railway Children" remain cherished classics in children's literature. Nesbit passed away on May 4, 1924, leaving behind a timeless legacy of widely read and appreciated works.
