I haven't heard of the book, but have to admit that I did a fair amount of mental cobweb cleaning myself in answering Simon's questions. Each new post in the series seems to be bringing more and more reading memories back -- much fun. :) I hope someone can answer your query, though.

I have never heard of,much less read "The Green Linnet", but as a bird lover who made extensive use of the "bird" pages in World Book Encyclopedia as a child/teenager, I must say I love the name. However, what really entranced me was the word "redoubtable", which I had to immediately Google!

PS - Somehow all of this reminds me vaugely of Rima the Bird Girl of W. H. Hudson's "Green Mansions". I am probably way, way off base here! LOL!


"Green Mansions" is a great title, and it sounds an interesting book, too. Thanks, Julie.


I read The Green Linnet also as a child, and remember that I loved it. I think it was about a tiny bird the little girl rescued then set free.


Thank you, Janine!
