Stand quietly in a park, garden, or the woods one day. Listen! Watch! If you are one of the lucky ones, you will see him. Lob! A green man. You have to be a special person to see Lob, that's what Grandpa Will says. Lucy's parents don't believe he exists, but Lucy does. And she's delighted when she finally catches sight of the Green Man in Grandpa's garden. Then something awful happens, and Lucy feels that her life has turned upside-down. Back at home in London, she wonders whether she'll ever see Lob again. Will he come and find her? 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.

Review:

"An exquisite novel for the more sensitive seven to nine-year-olds" Sunday Telegraph "One of the most gifted writers around must surely be Linda Newbery and Lob, her latest novel for younger readers, is the kind of book that will inspire in children a deep love of nature and in adults a yearning for the wonderment of childhood" Independent on Sunday "Linda Newbery tells her story beautifully, evoking empathy and emotion without ever straying into sentimentality" The Scotsman "The mystical and beautiful fable is one of my favourite titles of this year" -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller "I found I was thinking about it long after I'd turned the final page, because it's wonderful ... It's a wonderful story of trusting and believing in the unknown and keeping a legacy alive. You'll remember to look for Lob whenever you hear a rustling of leaves behind you" -- Penelope Harper Guardian
