Reviews

  • Newbery has stepped into timelessness with her short novel, ostensibly for middle-grade readers, entitled LOB (2010). It is a charming retelling of the Green Man legend, rich and playfully reinterpreted, which also has a contemporary thread

    Oxford Companion to Children's Literature
  • An exquisite novel for the more sensitive seven to nine-year-olds

    Sunday Telegraph
  • One of the most gifted writers around must surely be Linda Newbery and Lob, her latest novel for younger readers, is the kind of book that will inspire in children a deep love of nature and in adults a yearning for the wonderment of childhood

    Independent on Sunday
  • Linda Newbery tells her story beautifully, evoking empathy and emotion without ever straying into sentimentality

    The Scotsman
  • The mystical and beautiful fable is one of my favourite titles of this year
