More than a hundred years after its original publication, this is still one of E. Nesbit's most beloved and delightful stories. Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis lived in a comfortable house, surrounded by a cook and servants and two loving parents, until the evening when two mysterious men appeared and took their father away. Their mother moves the family to a small cottage in the countryside, where the children begin a series of exciting adventures, from saving a train filled with passengers from a landslide to rescuing a baby from a fire—and eventually unraveling the mystery of their father's disappearance.
