Another childrens classic which every child should be given a copy of!

I remember reading this book when I was about eight years old and not really understanding the story. I picked the book back up again at ten years old, and I must say even to this day it is one of my favourite stories.

The story is about three young children who are taken from the comforts of their family home to live in a quaint little house by a railway. Their father has been taken by mysterious men and they find their world turned upside down.

I adored the way the author developed each character, in that we get to experience the day-to-day mischief that the children get up to and see how their characters change over time, discovering that each is unique in their own way.

The story is fantastic and well thought out in that it shows the excitement and wonder that all children have, whilst it also explores a darker theme in that we don't know what has happened to the father.

As I said, I feel this story would be suitable for children ten years upwards.
