Overview

These enchanting, haunting stories from Carnegie winner Lucy M. Boston have become modern classics, beautifully evoking all the magic and wonder of childhood. Now The Children of Green Knowe and River at Green Knowe are available in one edition.

Children of Green Knowe
Tolly's great grandmother isn't a witch, but both she and her old house, Green Knowe, are full of a very special kind of magic. There are other children in the house - children who were happy there centuries before. Running around Green Knowe's moat, gardens and mysterious rooms, Tolly slowly discovers them, their toys and animals, and their wonderful stories . . .

River at Green Knowe
'What a lot of islands the river makes,' said Ida. 'We must go exploring and sail around them all.'
And so begins a wonderful, magical summer. Ida, Oscar and Ping are staying with Ida's great-aunt at the ancient, river-encircled house of Green Knowe. They set out to chart the river in the canoe, and soon discover that it has some surprising and mysterious secrets.

THIS BOOK CONTAINS TWO STORIES FROM THE GREEN KNOWE CHILDREN'S NOVELS PUBLISHED FROM 1954-1976. IN THE FIRST STORY-"THE CHILDREN OF GREEN KNOWE"-IS A STORY OF A VERY OLD HOUSE-"GREEN KNOWE" AND THE PEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE LIVED THERE. A BOY NAMED TOSELAND AND HIS GREAT GRANDMOTHER MRS. OLDKNOWE. THE STORY HAS ADVENTURES AND SPIRITS AND LOTS OF EXPLORING. TOSELAND OR TOLLY FOR SHORT LEARNS THE HISTORY OF HIS FAMILY AND GREEN KNOWE. THE STORY IS GREAT FUN! THE SECOND BOOK-"THE RIVER AT GREEN KNOWE" HAS DIFFERENT PEOPLE-THREE CHILDREN AND TWO OLD LADIES WHO RENT GREEN KNOWE FOR THE SUMMER. THE STORY CENTERS ON THE ADVENTURES THE CHILDREN HAVE IN A CANOE EXPLORING THE RIVER AND CANALS AROUND GREEN KNOWE. THESE STORIES MADE ME FEEL LIKE A CHILD AGAIN.
