Edith Nesbit - Retold by Michael L. Freeman

Three children and their mother move to a new home because their father gets sent away.

They are sad at the beginning of their new life, but they make a new friend along the way and live a lot of adventures. Three children go to live in the country.

Their house is near a train station. They go there with their mother. But their father isn’t there. The train station is an exciting place. Bobbie, Peter

and Phyllis are always there. And they do a lot of exciting things.
