For this book, the literary critic August Nemo has chosen the two most important and meaningful novels of Edith Nesbit which are The Railway Children and The Story of the Treasure Seekers. Nesbit published approximately 40 books for children, including novels, collections of stories and picture books. According to her biographer, Julia Briggs, Nesbit was "the first modern writer for children": Nesbit "helped to reverse the great tradition of children's literature inaugurated by Lewis Carroll, George MacDonald and Kenneth Grahame, in turning away from their secondary worlds to the tough truths to be won from encounters with things-as-they-are, previously the province of adult novels." Briggs also credits Nesbit with having invented the children's adventure story.
