E Nesbit: Queen of Children’s Literature


Edith (E.) Nesbit was the queen of children’s literature in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Her best-known work is The Railway Children (1906), a story of three children trying to prove the innocence of their father, who is falsely imprisoned for espionage.

Nesbit’s writing went beyond children’s books to adult novels, political writing, and even poetry. She is a talent not to be missed. Read on for more about E. Nesbit
