The River at Green Knowe (Green Knowe, Bk 3)
The River at Green Knowe - Green Knowe, Bk 3 Author:L. M. Boston, Peter Boston (Illustrator) The three children could not imagine a more perfect place for a holiday of pure adventure! Ida, Oskar, and ping were thrilled to discover the ancient manor house of Green Knowe set beside a wonderful river strewn with islands. Ida's aunt had rented the house for the summer and then had gone about her work, leaving the three young friends-the... more » English girl, the Polish refugee, and the displaced boy from the Orient-entirely free for glorious days on the river.
As soon as the children find the old canoe and glide off down the waiting river, adventures beyond their most exciting dreams begin to happen. By day and night, during long hours spent roving on the water and exploring the islands, the voyagers find real life and fantasy mingling; among their discoveries are an old hermit, winged horses met by moonlight, and a good-natured giant left from an earlier age.
With a magic touch, L.M. Boston weaves a spell from which the reader emerges reluctantly at the end.« less
