For as long as she can remember, Lucy has listened to her Grandpa’s stories about Lob. He’s a mysterious green man who lives in Grandpa’s garden. You have to be very special to see him; that’s what Grandpa says. Lucy’s parents think Lob’s just imaginary, but she is convinced he exists.

When Lucy experiences a family tragedy, Lob seems to disappear as well. What will she ever see him again? Linda Newbery, and the wonderful illustrations by Pam Smy conjur up a real green man out of the woods and stories of legend.
