I love E. Nesbit – I think she is great, and I identify with the way that she writes. Her children are very real children, and she was quite a groundbreaker in her day.
English author and poet Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) is best remembered as E. Nesbit, the name she used for all of her children’s books and stories. She achieved fame for Five Children and It, The House of Arden and The Railway Children, which has become one of the most loved classics of English literature.
