A haunted manor in the English countryside, home to great-grandmother Oldknow, holds many secrets. Tolly’s visit to Green Knowe is filled with adventure and mystery and stories from great-grandmother Oldknow.
I really enjoyed this book at first, I was hooked from the moment I started reading. I wanted to know more, to find out more stories and discover more about Green Knowe.
About half way through the book, I started to fall out of love with it. I found that the plot wasn’t really progressing and I didn’t feel like there was much character development either. By the end I was ready for it to end and wasn’t left wanting more or with any questions as I would with most books.
I think had there of been more of a plot and character development, this could have been a really engaging book loved by many. However, younger readers may enjoy this book, as it is simple and short and may be a good introduction to shorter novels (and classics) as it it just over 100 pages.
