en Limba Engleză Hardback – 7 sep 2018 – vârsta până la 12 ani
The Railway Children, written by Edith Nesbit and first published in 1906, is a classic children's novel that tells the story of three siblings who move from London to the countryside after their father is mysteriously taken away. The children-Roberta (Bobbie), Peter and Phyllis-adjust to their new life by exploring the countryside and making new friends, including the station master and the Old Gentleman who takes an interest in them. The novel follows the children as they embark on various adventures, from waving to the passing trains and helping a Russian exile to uncover his true identity to staging a daring rescue to save their father. Throughout their adventures, the children learn important lessons about perseverance, kindness and the power of love and family. The Railway Children is notable for its heart-warming portrayal of family life and the bond between siblings. The novel also explores themes of social class and injustice, as the family's new life in the country contrasts sharply with their privileged upbringing in London. Nesbit's writing style is known for its engaging and descriptive prose, and her use of everyday language makes the novel accessible and relatable to readers of all ages.

Notă biografică

Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was a British author and poet best known for her children's literature, including The Railway Children, Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet. Nesbit was born in London and spent much of her childhood moving between different parts of the country due to her father's work as an agricultural chemist. Nesbit began her writing career as a poet and was associated with the Symbolist movement. She later turned her attention to children's literature, drawing inspiration from her own experiences as a mother and her interest in the supernatural and magical worlds. Nesbit's writing was known for its humour, wit and imaginative storytelling, and she was one of the first authors to introduce a contemporary and realistic setting to children's literature. In addition to her writing, Nesbit was also an active member of the Fabian Society, a socialist organization that advocated for social and political change in Britain. Her political views were reflected in her writing, which often included themes of social justice and equality. Nesbit's works have been praised for their enduring appeal and their ability to engage and entertain readers of all ages. Her stories have been adapted into numerous films, television series and stage productions, and her influence on children's literature can be seen in the works of many contemporary authors. Nesbit's legacy as a pioneering and influential writer has continued to be celebrated and appreciated by readers around the world.


 • "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
"Stand firm'" said Peter, "and wave like mad!"' They were not railway children to begin with. When their Father mysteriously leaves home Roberta (everyone calls her Bobbie), Phyllis and Peter must move to a small cottage in the countryside with Mother. It is a bitter blow to leave their London home, but soon they discover the hills and valleys, the canal and of course, the railway. But with the thrilling rush and rattle and roar of the trains comes danger too. Will the brave trio come to the rescue? And most importantly, can they solve the disappearance of their Father? BACKSTORY: Find out all about steam trains and learn what it was really like to be a child in Edwardian times.


Includes an extra section for young readers about the writer, the book, the characters, other famous stories involving trains, a glossary and a test yourself
