E. Nesbit's birthday

Glad to see that google has celebrated E. Nesbit's birthday today with a railway children inspired drawing on the home page -- but sorry that a google elf got her age wrong. She would not have been 89 today, having been born in 1858... Anyway, here's my own tribute to the great writer.

I love my old copy of The Railway Children and was so irritated to read that some Mother Grundy wanted to ban it as it encouraged children to play on the railways. I have only read that by her . Which others do you recommend ?

Aaah, I loved E. Nesbit. Funny how so many authors on my childhood bookshelf had names beginning with E - E. Nesbit, Elizabeth Goudge, Enid Blyton, E.B. White...
Just back from the Edinburgh Book Festival. Went to a very good talk by Colm Toibin on his latest.
