Edith Nesbit and William Shakespeare

Edith Nesbit (1858 – 1924) was a British novelist, poet and magazine editor. Often called the "Queen of Children's literature", Nesbit published over 50 books for children, establishing a new genre.

Generally, Nesbit's characters are real children in realistic environments, embarking on fantasy adventures with magical creatures, influencing the work of later writers like CS Lewis and JK Rowling.

    "Frustrating"

    The sound quality is great and so is the narration. But the recording is not broken into tracks. So, if you want to listen to a particular story it is very difficult to find. If you don't mind just listening straight through it isn't really a problem. But for my purposes it was very frustrating. I also noticed that even when you find the beginning of the story you are looking for, the title is not announced. You must recognize the names of the characters or the story. Separate tracks for each chapter would be very helpful.
