    " This book introduced two new characters to the series. Another great edition to the series. "

    " Ack! Tolly and Grandma Oldknow aren't in this one! At least not yet.... Nope, they weren't in it. There were a few good adventures (Flying Horses Island and Hermit Island) but it's much better when the house and it's family is the focus of the book. "

    " This was good too. It was a little disconcerting to have all new characters, but they were easy to get to know and love. Their adventures seemed more fantastical, rather than rooted in history, but still a good read. "

    " This is a brilliant book, as are all Lucy Bostons "Green Knowe" stories. It stretches the imagination, and it has a wonderful aura of "whispering bamboo,". Just remember to warn children about the dangers of water!!, and they will love this book. "

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. It is this house that inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand and create the beloved Green Knowe series.
