Lob is a children's book, written by Linda Newbery, and published in 2010.

He's older than anyone can tell. Older than the trees. Older than anybody. For as long as she can remember Lucy has wanted to catch a glimpse of the mysterious green man who lives in Grandpa Will's garden: "Lob".

You have to be very special to see him; that's what Grandpa says. Lucy's parents think Lob's just imaginary, but Lucy knows he exists. And she can't believe it when she finally spots Lob in the gooseberry bushes.

But Lucy's world is about to be shattered by a terrible event. What will happen to Lob now - and will she ever see him again?

Reader's Reviews


Lob is an interesting book. I was sixteen when I read it and I still enjoyed it although it is meant for children younger than me. Lucy keeps thinking is Lob real, or is he just an imginary person? This is a good book to discuss with children under 10, I think it is a good real aloud. (Olivia age 16)
