Emily | 16 comments All five of these picture books by E. Nesbit use the text of short stories written over 100 years ago. All were originally published in magazines, then republished in short story collections. Both of the short story collections were first published in 1901. I tried to track down the original date of the magazine publications, but no luck. Still, 1901 is far more accurate than what Goodreads has listed now, which is publication dates in the 1980s.

I will be so grateful if you fix this - the incorrect dates are really annoying me!
