About the Author
Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) mainly wrote fictional works for children, most notably The Story of the Treasure (1898) and The Wouldbegoods (1899). This English author and political activist also co-founded the Fabian Society, an early ancestor to England’s current Labour Party. Although Nesbit redesigned children’s literature by writing stories with realistic characters in realistic, modern situations, she also wrote political works on socialism and some stories for adults.
