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.

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.

From AudioFile:

Tolly returns to Green Knowe for a spring visit with his great-grandmother, Oldknow. Over the course of daytime ramblings and nighttime story sessions, present and past times of the family and the beloved house blend together. Meet Susan and Jacob, listen to the exploits of Susan's older brother, and champion the friendships that develop. Simon Vance is a practiced narrator. His intimate voice beckons the listener into this special world, which crisscrosses time, neglected parts of the house, and the green heights of backyard trees. His presentation is as mysterious, perceptive, spunky, disdainful, and loving as needed to bring life to Boston's intriguing cast.
