The Railway Children by E. N. Nesbit, illustrated by Pamela Kay. This edition was first published in 1989 by Guild Publishing.
Life changes for Robert, Peter and Phyllis when their father has to go away, and they and their mother move to a little cottage in the country. They become the Railway Children, making friends with Perks the Porter and with the Station Master, and waving each day to the Green Dragon engine as it goes by.
Soon every element of the children's lives is involved with the railway, and it is through the railway that their sadness is turned to joy. One of the most moving of all children novels, it is also full of fun and excitement. The characters are vividly portrayed and the reader shares every detail of their daily life.
For this edition, the painter Pamela Kay has illustrated the book with careful attention to period detail. The pictures have been painted and drawn from life and mark the debut of a significant new book illustrator, who has given E. Nebit's classic text the romantic treatment it deserves.
188 page hard cover book in very good condition with no rips, tears, or writing. The dust jacket has some wear.
