An unforgettable tale of magic and time travel that has been loved by children and parents alike for more than a century
English author and poet Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) is best remembered as E. Nesbit, the name she used for all of her children's books and stories. She achieved fame for Five Children and It, The House of Arden and The Railway Children, which has become one of the most loved classics of English literature.
I love E. Nesbit - I think she is great and I identify with the way that she writes. Her children are very real children and she was quite a groundbreaker in her day. -- J.K. Rowling
