The Children of Green Knowe (Green Knowe Chronicles #01)by L. M. Boston
Synopses & Reviews
L. M. Boston's thrilling and chilling tales of Green Knowe, a haunted manor deep in an overgrown garden in the English countryside, have been entertaining readers for half a century. Now the children of Green Knowe — both alive and ghostly — are back in appealing new editions.
The spooky original illustrations have been retained, but dramatic new cover art by Brett Helquist (illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events) gives the books a fresh, timeless appeal for today's readers.
"[F]or the right child, the Greene Knowe books convey an unforgettable sense of place and a glimpse at the cyclical nature of time." Hornbook Guide to Children
"The Green Knowe books are illustrated by Mrs. Boston's son, Peter, who was an architect. He grew up in the house so the drawings quite accurately and evocatively fit the story." Children's Literature
L. M. Bostons classic Green Knowe series is back. Enjoy these timeless stories in five new beautiful editions.
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.
