One of the landmarks of children's fantasy: an enduring favorite first published in 1907, now reissued in the "Books of Wonder" series with a dozen splendid new color illustrations that extend an award-winning artist's already extraordinary range. Skillfully selecting pivotal, magical moments, Zelinsky again uses his trademark dynamic perspectives and figures, while depicting the intriguing castle itself in enchantingly imaginative detail. A delightful blend of period flavor, contemporary sensibility, and innovative composition. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - E. Nesbit
EDITH NESBIT was a mischievous child who grew up into an unconventional adult. With her husband, Hubert Bland, she was one of the founder members of the socialist Fabian Society; their household became a centre of the socialist and literary circles of the times. E. Nesbit turned late to children's writing. Her first children's book, THE TREASURE SEEKERS, was published in 1899 to great acclaim. Other books featuring the Bastable children followed, and a series of magical fantasy books, including FIVE CHILDREN AND IT also became very popular. THE RAILWAY CHILDREN was first published monthly in the LONDON MAGAZINE in 1905, and published as a book in 1906 and has been in print ever since.
