What are the Green Knowe books
'The clock went tick-tock, and in the stillness he heard little bare feet running across the floor, then laughter and whispering, and a sound like the pages of a big book being turned over.' L.M Boston
Tolly, a child of seven, has been summoned from Burma to live with his great-grandmother, Mrs Oldknow at Green Knowe. He arrives in mid Winter, having travelled through a rain soaked England. Boston imagines a place which is inhabited by the friendly ghosts of former inhabitants. Other spirits include the children's dog, Orlando, a demonic tree-spirit, Green Noah and a statue of St Christopher.
