Overview

L. M. Boston's thrilling and chilling tales of Green Knowe, a haunted manor deep in an overgrown garden in the English countryside, have been entertaining readers for half a century. Now the children of Green Knowe—both alive and ghostly—are back in appealing new editions.

The spooky original illustrations have been retained, but dramatic new cover art by Brett Helquist (illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events) gives the books a fresh, timeless appeal for today's readers. 5-1/8 X 7-5/8.

This book's main character is Ping who is a Chines boy. He is alone because he has no family. One day, he met a big gorilla, Hanno in the zoo. In my surprised, he understood Hanno's feeling. They became like a vest friends. However, a sad accident happened... I was so impressed by this story. I thought, the animals have a mind like a human. This book taught me something important. I reccommend you this book.
