Featuring more tales of mischief and mayhem from the lovable characters of The Bastable Series, “Oswald Bastable and Others” also includes eleven short stories full of magic and fantasy, perfect for family bedtime reading. Nesbit was a prolific and popular writer of children’s literature, publishing more than 60 such books under the name E. Nesbit. She was also a political activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, which had a significant influence on the Labour Party and British politics in general. This charming children’s trilogy would make for perfect bedtime reading and constitutes a must-have for fans and collectors of Nesbit’s wonderful work. Other notable works by this author include: “The Prophet’s Mantle” (1885), “Something Wrong” (1886), and “The Marden Mystery” (1896). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
