    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 ...

    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 spit...

    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

    This is a bittersweet story dealing with loss as well as the nature of belief All of this is wrapped up in the story of Lob, a kind of combination of Green Man and household spirit There is real magic here, and a story which fosters a genuine love of nature and all that grows, with an emphasis on the natural cycles of the world Newbery s use of the Green Man is inventive and new, without departing far from existing ideas.This book is extremely well written and beautifully illustrated It had a lovely old fashioned feel to the voice, which is lyrical and would be great read aloud The main character of Lucy is well drawn and interesting curious, enthusiastic and creative I m sure all child readers would find something in her to identify with The relationship with her Grandpa is another high point and will be familiar to many children who find a special closeness with a grandpare...
