The Magic World, Classics To Go

This collection of delightful modern fairy tales dates from 1912, when Edith Nesbit was already well-established as the godmother of children’s literature. It contains twelve stories that combine classic fairy-tale elements with modern concepts in a deliciously witty way. And almost every one of the stories is as full of fun and magic for today’s children as it was a century ago.

She wrote or collaborated on more than 60 such books. She was also a political activist and co-founder of the Fabian Society, a socialist organisation later affiliated to the Labour Party.
