    I bought this book for my 10 year old granddaughter, after her class had performed a dramatised version of the story of Lob, the green man After she had read it again she passed it on to me Thank you, Aimee what a delightful book Those privileged to be able to see Lob are given all the help they need to make their gardens and allotments grow well They are the people who are in tune with their natural surroundings and find joy and contentment through being part of the natural world The I bought this book for my 10 year old granddaughter, after her class had performed a dramatised version of the story of Lob, the green man After she had read it again she passed it on to me Thank you, Aimee what a delightful book Those privileged to be able to see Lob are given all the help they need to make their gardens and allotments grow well They are the people who are in tune with their natural surroundings and find joy and contentment through being part of the natural world The story is also about loss and finding yourself.As well as being a good story, there are some beautifully drawn illustrations and poetic passages included Lob by Linda Newbery has become one of my favourite children s books

    Grandpa Will is one of the rare few who can see Lob Lucy can see him, too, but how can she become a farmer when she lives in an apartment in London

    Stand quietly in a park, garden, or the woods one day Listen Watch If you are one of the lucky ones, you might see him Lob A green man Lob s main character is little Lucy, who loves visiting her grandpa and helping him in his vegetable garden He teaches her all about seeds and watering and weeding, but Lucy is not grandpa s only helper Lob is a little eternal man, who lives in the garden and keeps out of sight Only special people can see him Grandpa has been able to see him for many y Stand quietly in a park, garden, or the woods one day Listen Watch If you are one of the lucky ones, you might see him Lob A green man Lob s main character is little Lucy, who loves visiting her grandpa and helping him in his vegetable garden He teaches her all about seeds and watering and weeding, but Lucy is not grandpa s only helper Lob is a little eternal man, who lives in the garden and keeps out of sight Only special people can see him Grandpa has been able to see him for many years, and Lucy learns to see Lob too Lob helps out in the garden, weeding, tidying and polishing grandpa s tools.Linda Newbery really brings to life the magical qualities of a garden, and Lob may well encourage kids to get out in the garden if only to see whether they can spot Lob for themselves.However, Lob isn t all about magic and sweetness and light Without giving away the plot, I can say that Lucy and Lob s idyll doesn t last and they both have to face up to harsh realities When I started the book I thought it might make a nice bedtime story for my nieces they re three and five , but they re too young for Lob for a while yet I know age ranges for children s books are controversial, but the rBooks website suggests that Lob is suitable for 7 9 year olds.I will say that the magic returns for a lovely, happy ending that involves lots of plants All in all Lob is a magical book, and would make a great read for a child that s into gardening or just loves being outdoors And there s the potential for really bringing Lob to life, by recreating Lucy s artistic endeavours, as well

    Lucy s grand father lives in the country and loves to garden Teaching Lucy to plant and appreciate the earth and all it yields, he credits Lob for some of the harvest Lob is a green man as old as the earth, seen only by sensitive people.When Lucy observes Lob from the corner of her eyes, she feels blessed Lob imparts a good feeling to those who respect him.When Lucy s beloved grand father dies, and the cottage is torn down to make way for a large development of houses, Lucy worries about Lob Lucy s grand father lives in the country and loves to garden Teaching Lucy to plant and appreciate the earth and all it yields, he credits Lob for some of the harvest Lob is a green man as old as the earth, seen only by sensitive people.When Lucy observes Lob from the corner of her eyes, she feels blessed Lob imparts a good feeling to those who respect him.When Lucy s beloved grand father dies, and the cottage is torn down to make way for a large development of houses, Lucy worries about Lob.Living in London, Lucy obsesses As Lob intuitively makes his journey from the cottage to London, along the way he meets some nasty people who cage him and try to harm him These passages are strongest when we see the dark side of Lob, portrayed as a feral creature unafraid of snarling, biting and spitting.The story, augmented with the black and white illustrations of Pam Smy, is delightful

    Pretty cute, and probably worth a re read Glad I picked this up at HBP for a dollar.

    This story perfectly blurs the edges between reality and garden magic This book will take you on a magical journey through the seasons with young Lucy who gains a passion for gardening and nature through her grandpa The reader joins in with her discovery of the magical mysterious green man Lob The story took some unexpected twists and turns Some funny, some sad I love the amazing illustrations through out.

    As a gardener, children s lit lover, and aficionado of fairy lore, of course I loved this It s sweet but not sickly sweet, just the right length for a simple story about family and magic and believing in yourself and the journey of Lob the green man to find his new Person

  8. Anna Davidson says:

    A sweet, gentle story about Lucy and her ability to see Lob, a green man Themes of nature, family especially the bond between a grand daughter and her grandfather and grief Beautiful illustrations accompany the lyrical text.

  9. Elizabeth Rose says:

    This is a sweet story based on the Green Man It s a little deep for a children s book, but overall it was satisfying to read, and I bet it would be perfect for Pagan children

    This began as a 4 star read and then proceeded to shed stars at an alarming rate.
