Description
(A Commended Runner-up for the Carnegie Medal) Originally published in 1954, this is the first in Lucy Boston's series of books for readers 8 to 12 about the house called Green Knowe, which includes the Carnegie Medal winner A Stranger at Green Knowe. When young Toseland—Tolly—is sent to live with his great-grandmother at Green Knowe, he wonders briefly if she isn't a witch. Her old house is certainly a magical place, where Tolly sometimes encounters other children—children who had been happy living there centuries before.

"[A book] to own and read aloud and come back to over and over again. It is one of the best fantasies I have ever read."—Horn Book

"An uncommon tale ... told with a gratifying blend of the eerie, the sinister, and the familiar."—The New Yorker
