Fascinating story. Kind of sad. I reread One and Only Ivan to compare. I was startled by the differences in zoos from the time of Green Knowe to the more modern Ivan where the zoo was a goal of a great place to live. I read this with my book group and we mostly enjoyed it. It was fun to learn about Lucy Boston and her inspiration for the book.

A young boy (Tolly) visiting his grandmother at Green Knowe, works with the ghosts of children who had once lived there, to discover the final resting place of a long lost family treasure.

It wasn't what I expected. Perhaps my opinion was tainted by memories of Pope's Sherwood Ring which caters more to girls. Or maybe it was Helquist, who, as whimsical and fantastic as he is, doesn't really prep you for the story you get. I'm rather sad that I didn't read this one first and, probably more important, that I didn't read it before I was 13 or so. Not that I wouldn't recommend it. It nicely alternates between action and a homey sort of style that really is perfect for evening storytelling.… (més)
