The Children of Green Knowe

The Children of Green Knowe - L.M. Boston,  Peter Boston An exquisitely written, wholly involving book, as interesting for adults as for children. It is a ghost story - but eerie, rather than frightening. I was fortunate to have a classroom teacher read this to me when I was about 9 years old, and I've read it many times since, especially around Christmas time. Just remarkably beautiful -- I think you won't find better writing anywhere, for any age.
