Five Children And Who

Today’s Google Doodle is for the birthday of children’s author Edith Nesbit.

(Although somebody really should tell them that 1858 wasn’t 89 years ago.)
(EDIT: someone has.)

Best known for The Railway Children, she also wrote updated fairytales, Shakespeare adaptations, horror stories, and a series of what would today be called YA urban fantasy, adapted by the BBC, about then-modern kids meeting a strange and mystical being who grants their wishes unreliably and takes them on adventures including trips back in time...

Most stealable title: Thirteen Ways Home.
