The Railway Children by E. Nesbitt

When Father is taken away unexpectedly, Roberta, Peter, Phyllis and their mother have to leave their comfortable life in London to go and live in a small cottage in the country.

The children seek solace in the nearby railway station, and make friends with Perks the Porter and the Station Master himself.
Each day, the children run down the field to the railway track and wave at the passing London train, sending their love to Father.

Little do they know that the kindly old gentleman passenger who waves back holds the key to their father’s disappearance. .

Heidi by Johanna Spyri

When five year old Heidi is sent to live with her grandfather high up in the Alps, no one really knows how they will get on.

Even though her grandfather can be fierce, Heidi loves it up in the beautiful Alps, playing with the goats and birds.

But when her strict aunt decides that she must leave her mountain home, Heidi is determined to return to her happy life with her grandfather.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Meet the March Sisters:
· Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love.
· Then there’s tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer.
· Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first
· Finally there’s Amy, the youngest and most precocious.

Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures – including Laurie, the boy next door.

And through sisterly squabbles and tragic losses, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

When waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise.

Anne Shirley- a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead.

Feisty and full of spirit, she soon charms her way into the Cuthberts’ affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter.

It’s not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without ‘their’ Anne – and for the people of Avonlea to recall what it was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

The only thing in the world that matters to Mrs Bennett, is marrying all five of her daughters to rich, landed gentlemen.

So when two wealthy young gentlemen move to town, she vows that at least one of her daughters will marry into their fortunes.

Jane and Elizabeth, her eldest daughters, soon discover that love is rarely straightforward and is often surprising. Because, surely that sullen, quiet, mysterious Mr Darcy can’t be more than he seems… can he?

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

When wealthy Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin’s boarding school in London, she is determined to settle in and make friends.

Charismatic and popular, with a big heart and a love of storytelling, she seems to be succeeding.

Her father always said she was a Little Princess, and she knows exactly what it means to be a princess: to be kind, understanding and polite.

That is, until tragedy strikes. Sara must fight harder than she thought possible to remain both strong and kind in the most difficult of circumstances.
