Publisher's Summary

The story of Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis and their life in the country has never been out of print since it was first published in 1906. Charming, sentimental, and unforgettable, the novel's enduring appeal lives on in this BBC radio full-cast dramatisation starring Timothy Bateson as the Old Gentleman.

All aboard!

My 8 year old boy loved this book, even though it prominently featured the girls and less so Peter. Yes, he did have to hit the pause button often to ask me questions about life in 1905, but we like talking together about such things and find it makes the book more enjoyable to discuss along the way.

Loved it, highly recommended!

This is a fantastic audiobook and definately one of my favourites, I love the classic stories and the bbc have done a fantastic job at taking these classical stories and turning them into great dramatised audibooks.

This is the first time I have listened to these stories done by the bbc, they have a big range of them from lots of the stories we know and have grown up with. I plan on buying a lot more of them as I am sure they will be just as good as this one.

The dramatisation of this story is fantastic, its like your watching a film because of the way its dramatised because every person is played by someone else and you even have sound effects like the train for example.

This audiobook was throughly enjoyable and the length was fine, when I saw how short it was I worried it wouldn't be very good but it was fantastic. Its done really well and certainly doesn't feel short, as I said its like watching a film.

Highly recommended for all, its something the whole family will enjoy. I'm in my twenties and I loved it, I am sure my husband will too and I am sure I'll be listening to this audiobook for many years to come, when I have children I'm sure they will listen to it too.
