E. Nesbit’s beautiful story of The Railway Children has faired well in many excellent and faithful adaptations on stage and screen. It is always refreshing however to return to the original book. The story has a charm and a depth which raises it, like all the best children’s literature, to something which can be appreciated by all ages.
Bobbie, Phyllis and Peter, through their adventures on the railway begin to come of age as they face thrilling adventures and meet new friends. Nothing is sugar coated by Nesbit; there is real danger, there are real human conflicts to be navigated and over it all hangs the dark cloud of their missing father.
