In this classic children's book by E. Nesbit, three children are suddenly uprooted from their happy suburban life to move to the country with their mother. Their new house, "Three Chimneys", is near a railway line, and Roberta (Bobbie), Peter and Phyllis (Phil), find amusement in watching the trains and waving to the passengers. They become friendly with Albert Perks, the station porter, and with the Old Gentleman who regularly takes the 9:15 down train. The children get involved in all kinds of good deeds, while their mother is busy writing children books.

I love this
I like most of Nesbit's stories but I didn't enjoy the narration - too much 'little girl' voice all the way through, even for Mother, which was very off-putting.
This story is a classic, which I've loved since childhood and revisit regularly.
