    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 10/29/2010

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 8/3/2010

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adela | 7/25/2010

    " No Tolly, no grandmother, no ghosty children. This was dull, dull, dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/21/2010

    " Full of beauty and fascination, always with something adventurous in its channels and islands, the river can be considered one of the story's characters. "

    " it was a very interesting book. it was creative and kept my eye in it. i had it read in one day "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JulieK | 5/28/2009

    " This was recommended by a friend. It was sweet and dreamy, but I may have had to read it as a kid to really find it magical. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/6/2009

    " This title is a bit different than the other Green Knowe books. I found it a bit scary actually, and I would warn parents that they might want to check this one out before they hand it over to a small child. As you would expect, the good guys win, but not before some really awful stuff happens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 4/16/2009

    " This was a delightful read, where Ping and Tolly work together to thwart efforts of a nosy neighbor who appears to be somewhat evil, from getting inside Green Knowe. The grandmother, as always, is a delightful woman! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 6/9/2007

    " By far the best and creepiest of the Green Knowe books. Made reading the first four titles worthwhile. Brrrr. "

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.
