Book Review: The Children of Green Knowe

 Summary: "Tolly" Toseland 7 is rowed up to great-gran Linnet Oldknow by servant Boggis - there has always been a Boggis at Green Knowe. The real "castle" is over 900 years old. Gran tells old family stories, and songs. Over the generations there have been many who can see, hear, and feel the ghosts, evoked by white-on-black illustrations. Toby 14, Alexander, and Linnet 6 linger after the Plague, as does the cursed topiary Green Noah.

 Thoughts: This was an adorable little book reminiscent of Tom's Midnight Garden or an E. Nesbit story. It's fun, imaginative, and keeps you guessing about what's around the next corner!
 The writing style is nice and carries a classical feel to it that weaves the reader in and out of a dreamlike state. 
 The characters were cute and interesting. The book is very short so I didn't get to know them as much as I would have liked but that's what the next several books are for!

 Content: The ending to the story was a little frightening. There's mention of witchcraft and, of course, ghosts. 
 Otherwise a clean and fun read for all ages!
