REVIEW The Children of Green Knowe

REVIEW Ï The Children of Green Knowe ‘Notable for its illustrations and literary uality’ Schoolmaster ‘A most attractive story of a little boy who is lucky enough to see and hear something of his family who lived three hundred years ago This is beautifully written’ Country Life ‘It is rare indeed to find a book that stands comparison with The Secret Garden but Green Knowe has that uality of elusive yet powerful magic bound to a reality as solid as bread and butter The illustrations by Peter Boston enhance this atmosphere’ Time and Tide ‘The adventures that make up the body of the story are something uite individual in children’s writing Altogether it is a most unusual sto. Listened to the audiobook while winding woolyarn Reminiscent of childhood magical thinking I loved the descriptive language the stories and the birds and animals While I listened I thought back to visits to my grandma s house which I experienced as a haven of comfort and unconditional love When he arrives at Green Knowe Tozeland s great granny greets him warmly and gives him the name of Tolly She is loving and engaging and puts him at ease I love the relationship that develops between them and how they feel so comfortable together Overall it was a delightful listening experience

REVIEW Ï The Children of Green Knowe Ry with magic in the telling as much as in the content Children as young as eight years old would enjoy having it read to them and it is impossible to set an upper limit for its appeal’ The Times Literary Supplement ‘The book is one that will particularly delight the child who reads not so much to share vicariously in violent events but rather as an escape into some frail private world’ The Spectator ‘ its real unreal enchantment akin to Mr de la Mare’s work its freshness of phrase it’s happy lingering on the edge of time with Toby and his horse Feste as we listen to Alexander’s flute and Linnet’s laughter’ John o’ London’s Weekl. I love these books and The Children of Green Knowe first in the series is one of my favorites1 The Green Knowe series as a whole is the story of a house that has stood for so long and been loved so well that time is flexible People who lived in and loved the house can meet even after centuriesThe Children of Greene Knowe opens as Tolly makes his first trip to stay there with his great grandmother whom he has never met He is in initially nervous but soon comes to love the place and meets three children who lived there long agoI really enjoy the characters here Tolly and his grandmother make a wonderful pair They understand one another well without the age difference being downplayed Tolly is a young boy and Grandmother Oldknow is adult but they are able to share their love of the house while she teaches him of its history and shares his joy as he finds stashes of the other children s belongings even if she does have to caution him to Stop putting swords through the bedclothes at one pointI also appreciated the unpredictable sometimes frustrating nature of the house s magic Tolly gradually learns to accept the fact that he never knows uite when the other children will be visible to him but it is frustrating at first He wants his friends to be present all the time I want to be with them Why can t I be with them he cries at one point It is wonderful but sometimes frustratingThe Children of Green Knowe is overall a uiet book a book of discovery Though the remnants of an old curse present a threat it s only briefly Stronger than the sense of danger is the sense of joy Joy of place and joy in nature Tolly makes friends not only with the children but with the birds and small animals in the winter gardenBest of all the writing is beautiful Take the first description of Grandmother Oldknow whose face had so many wrinkles it looked as if someone had been trying to draw her for a very long time and every line put in had made the face like her Or read any of the descriptions of the nature around Green KnoweHighly recommended551 I cannot decide between The Children of Green Knowe and The River at Green Knowe Sometimes I love one the best sometimes the otherReview originally written for
