The first critical edition of the beloved classics that established Edith Nesbit as a major children's writer provides extensive guidance to help today's reader navigate the enchanting world of the Bastable family. Nelson situates Nesbit's groundbreaking stories in the context of British popular culture at the dawn of the twentieth century.

Review:
Series editors Matthew Grenby's and Lynne Vallone's feedback on this proposal:
'Claudia Nelson has written an excellent proposal. The Treasure Seekers and The Woodbegoods fit together perfectly; indeed the latter continues directly from where the former ends. It is likely that both will be taught on a number of children's literature courses, on both sides of the Atlantic, and we know from personal experience how difficult it is to source reputable copies of both texts, particularly The Woodbegoods which has been out of print for some years. More than this, though, Professor Nelson proposes a major work of literary scholarship: the first full critical edition of these two texts. The research into publication history that she proposes to undertake, and the editorial apparatus she plans to include, amply justify the large size of the volume.'

FEEDBACK ON THE SERIES:
'Very enthusiastic!! Some of these titles are not available AT ALL right now and it would be so great to be able to teach them in nice new editions! Yes.'
Professor Marah Gubar, University of Pittsburgh
'I think the focus on less known texts is the most attractive thing here - if this were nothing but Peter Pan, etc., I wouldn't be as interested. It will also depend on the quality of the notes and introduction. I don't generally like anthologies, and one benefit here is that these are packaged (more) singly. I would definitely consider using the Edgeworth, Sherwood, Newbery, andYonge volumes. I would also be able to use these in graduate as well as undergraduate seminars.
I'm enthusiastic and would definitely recommend this kind of series to my students.'
Professor Kenneth Kidd, University of Florida
'I strongly support the idea of such a series, which if executed and marketed well is likely to encourage further excellent historical work in children's literature. Of the titles proposed to date, I would be most likely to adopt Countess Kate (no competing edition for this title, which I do presently teach); this preference merely reflects my own comfort zone, which is situated more in the mid-Victorian through Edwardian periods than in the 18th century and Romantic periods. I could be tempted by a good Sherwood volume, though!'
Professor Claudia Nelson, Texas A&M University
'I'm very keen on the Classics of Children's Literature series and believe that it will appeal to the growing numbers of scholars and students working in children's literature.
We ask students to obtain primary texts of 'classic' works. So far we haven't required that they purchase critical editions, but if the Palgrave series were to be available and not too expensive we would recommend this series.'
Professor Clare Bradford, Deakin University, Aus
'Often the choices of texts on university programmes is determined by what's in print so the Palgrave texts could have quite an impact on reading practices.
I am very enthusiastic about the series. It would make an excellent addition to Palgrave's list and I would certainly recommend it to students. The series editors are both leading international scholars and world experts in their field I can't think of a better choice.'
Professor Judy Simons, De Montfort University
'As before, I'm very enthusiastic about this series. There's much attention given to children's literature as an area of study these days, but there's still a lack of many key texts, and this series could fill some of these gaps.'
Dr David Rudd, University of Bolton
