I was really excited to find this book again. Read it when I was young and still enjoy the adventures of Tolly and his Great-grandmother.

This is a wonderful book for firing up imagination. Are the children he sees and hears real or not? Does the statue of St. Christopher really walk at night? When will he see the ghost horse?

This was a favorite when I was young. The stuff about Green Noah was very scary for me, but there was something delightful about the connections between the generations that had lived at the house, and the surprising matter-of-factness with which both the boy and the grandmother treated the presence of ghost children was enchanting.
