Waterstones Says

Inspired by E. Nesbit's evergreen novel, this moving, beautifully crafted tale from the bestselling author of the Tracy Beaker series tells of Phoebe, her mother and her siblings who must adjust to a new life after the beloved father of the family suddenly disappears.

From multi-million bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson and inspired by E. Nesbit's timeless classic, The Primrose Railway Children is a gorgeous, heartwarming story of family secrets and new adventures. Sit back and enjoy the journey!

Phoebe Robinson loves making up stories - just like her wonderful, imaginative Dad. When he mysteriously disappears, Phoebe, Perry, Becks and their mum must leave everything behind and move to a small cottage in the middle of nowhere.

Struggling to feel at home and missing her Dad terribly, Phoebe's only distraction is her guinea pig Daisy. Until the family discover the thrilling steam trains at the railway station and suddenly, every day is filled with adventure.

But Phoebe still can't help wondering, what is Mum hiding, and more worryingly, is Dad okay?
