Product description


Green Knowe still exerts its magic for the right children - but to those who encountered it in The Children of Green Knowe and Treasure of Green Knowe it comes as something of a frustration not to find Tolly and his great-grandmother and summer adventures of three sensitive youngsters, Ida, whose aunt had rented the house for the summer, and two DP children, a Polish lad and a boy from the Orient, take the reader into the magic of the waiting river, the islands, the ancient manor house, the old hermit, who had once been a bus driver, and the good natured giant who was bored with hiding out and wanted to be a clown in a circus. Ida's aunt was an anthropologist- and giants of the past were her passion, but when the children kept their dreams to themselves. Fantasy and realism in exotic blend in a book which may prove a bit too sophisticatedly English for some American children. (Kirkus Reviews)

"Outstanding and imaginative." (School Library Journal) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

LUCY MARIA BOSTON (1892-1990) purchased a ramshackle manor house near Cambridge, England, in 1935, which over a period of two years she lovingly restored. That house inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand to create the beloved Green Knowe series.

Peter Boston is a published author and an illustrator of children's books. Some of the published credits of Peter Boston include The Stones of Green Knowe, Strategic Organizational Diagnosis and Design: The Dynamics of Fit (Information and Organization Design Series), Treasure of Green Knowe. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
