Publisher's Summary

When Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis' father is arrested for a crime he did not commit and they have to start a new life in the country, they fear the happy times are gone forever. Little do they expect the exciting adventures and the new friends that await them. By the end they have learned more about life and themselves than they had ever dreamed possible. This full-cast, dramatized version of E. Nesbit's children's classic delightfully brings to life the adventures of The Railway Children.

Audible Editor Reviews

This two-hankie classic of British children's literature follows a mother, two daughters, and a young son as they repair to a rural area near a railway station after a false accusation places the father in jail. Subdued sound effects, such as the chugging of a train as it roars by, are featured. As usual with Naxos, the tale is punctuated by bits of classical music, sometimes sad, sometimes sweepingly grand. Cast members are well chosen, particularly the young woman who portrays 12-year-old Roberta (Bobbie). A tear comes to the eye as the father is reunited with her.
