It is a sheer delight to read such a beautifully written and imaginative story in today's world of formulaic writing for children. "The Children of Green Knowe" defies categorisation but somehow captured the imagination of 40-something Mum and (then) 7 year old son alike.

Written in 1954 this is an utterly magical book which is so gentle and evocative it almost had me in tears. It tells the story of 'Tolly' a boy sent to stay with his great-grandmother in the school holidays as his parents are dead. The house is alive with the personalities who have lived there all down the centuries, Tolly's ancestors.
