Review:

"It's a story that was written more than 100 years ago, yet The Railway Children commands the affections of the British people like few other fictions" (Daily Telegraph)

"Guaranteed to jerk a tear from the most stony-faced child" (Observer)

"Her child characters were remarkable in her day because they are so entirely human. They are intelligent, vain, aggressive, humorous, witty, cruel, compassionate. . . in fact, they are like adults" (Gore Vidal)

"The Railway Children was one of the first children's classics I ever read. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy it. I started reading the story and was immediately gripped. E. Nesbit remembered exactly what it felt like to be a child" (Jacqueline Wilson)
