About The Book

Puffin Clothbound Classics are stunning collectable gift editions of some of the best-loved classics in the world – including this charming edition of The Railway Children

Father is in trouble, and Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis have to leave their home in London and go into hiding in the countryside.

‘Boys and girls are only little men and women. And we are much harder and hardier than they are.’

Each day, the children run down to the nearby railway station, where they say good morning to the Station Master and hello to Perks the Porter and wave at the passing London train, sending their love to Father.

Little do they know that the stranger on board the 9:15 a.m. train might be able to help track him down…
