Topic: The Railway Children by: E. Nesbit
I have just begun to read The Railway children by E. Nesbit. The short description in the back of the book really intrigued me and I'm excited to see how this book plays out! They were a family of five that lived in a big house with many servants, and rooms. The children's names were, Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis all of them between the ages of 12 and 7. They had two loving parents who spent lots of time reading and playing with them throughout the days. They were a richer family than most since their father had a job in the government, meaning he was away a lot. Their mother wrote poems and stories for them almost every day, she was very good at they all thought. After their father had just got back from one of his trip and they all were enjoying each others company two men came to the door and asked to see their father. their meeting was brief but the look on their fathers face showed that it was very serious. When the children's mother went to see what was the matter she also came out with a pale ghost like complexion. Only once have I ever seen someone have a ghost like complexion, it was when my younger brother almost fainted. After he had returned back to normal he explained that it had felt like his whole body was going numb.
