This will most likely be a hard sell to children, but that said, I enjoyed it. It was atmospheric and conveyed such a sense of awe for the natural world: what is seen and what is unseen.
The story revolves around The Green Man, a legendary character from British folklore, who has made it into adult and YA fantasy, but not so for children's fiction. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385752040, Hardcover)

Lucy knew Lob was there, from the way she felt inside. There was a sparking of mischief in her head, a tingle of energy in her arms and legs. She wanted to run, jump, climb, be everywhere at once. You have to be a special person to see Lob, that’s what Lucy’s Grandpa Will says. Lucy’s parents don’t believe in him. But Lucy does. And then she finally catches sight of the Green Man in Grandpa’s garden. And then she knows. Lob is here, and he is real—now and forever and ever!

Lucy and her grandfather are special because only they can see Lob, the magical "green man" who helps in the garden, but then something terrible happens and Lucy fears she will never see Lob again.
