The Lovereading4Kids comment
Set in a beautiful and magical place, this is an award-winning classic story of a friendship that stretches across centuries as Tolly, newly arrived at Green Knowe, his great grandmother’s old wonderfully atmospheric house, makes friends with Alexander, Toby and Linnet, his long distant relatives who lived in the house centuries before. Although from another time, Tolly’s relatives are not ghosts; they and Tolly share a home and, through the stories of long-ago that Tolly’s grandmother tells him, Tolly knows all about their lives while they can visit him in his. Together the children have wonderful adventures in the surrounding countryside. Further adventures set in the same wonderful house but now occupied by other children follow in The River at Greene Knowe.

The Children of 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 their canoe, and soon discover that it hides some surprising and mysterious secrets.
