The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prize-winning author Linda Newbery has written a lyrical and imaginative story about the power of believing in the unknown. Lucy loves spending time with her grandfather as he potters around his garden. He introduces her to Lob, his mysterious helper in the garden. Is he real or not? Grannie Annie scoffs at the idea of the hidden green man but Lucy believes and, when things begin to go wrong, she knows she can turn to the mysterious Lob for comfort.
Lob by Linda Newbery
Lucy can't believe it when she finally spots Lob in the gooseberry bushes. But Lucy's world is about to be shattered by a terrible event. What will happen to Lob now - and will she ever see him again? Linda Newbury, with the vivid embroidery of Pam Smy's illustrations, has conjured a real green man right out of the woods and stories of legend.
