It has the power to move even the hardest heart. Edith Nesbit has surely brought the liveliness through words as if it were a real story. The best thing about the story is that no one is the bad-bad-guy. No one is a miscreant. I think very few stories have it. A must-read book for people of all ages . . .
My all-time favourite classic children's author
I love her books
By turns sweet and serious, this much loved classic is above all a celebration of kindness and hope
Edith Nesbit is endlessly surprising and inventive . . . She is also simply the funniest writer we have ever had, while being the one who could most easily and sweetly break your heart with a phrase. Just try saying "Daddy, oh my Daddy" without catching your breath
