Book Description

'I don't know that you have done anything wrong,' Miss Hepplewhite said. 'But it is possible that you have done something rather dangerous.' William and Susie thought they were just playing a game when they cooked a witch's brew in the old barn and said a spell over it, but Martha was not so sure. And indeed, the three friends soon learn that they have called up something dark and evil out of the distant past . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whispering Knights: A Beloved Treasure 1 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Ever since our primary school teacher read us 'The Whispering Knights', I have been spellbound its magic. Immediately persuading my mum to buy it for me, I have read it repeatedly over the years, always with the same childlike wonder and enthrallment. An adventure of spells, witches, and ancient mystical monuments surrounding three village children: Martha, Susie & William; 'The Whispering Knights' is a fantastic story with the power to evoke the wildest magical dreams in a child's imagination. Superbly written and illustrated, it is in my opinion the best of Penelope Lively's works. I still count it as my favourite book ever. Exciting, scary & simply unforgettable. Now, reaching my mid-twenties, my original copy is so worn the pages have fallen out, and I find myself in search of a pristine copy so I can enjoy it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thirty five years later, it's still a beautiful book 25 Jun 2007
By Susan J. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At the ripe old age of 46 I've come across this book, squirreled amongst the group of items I've kept since childhood. I last read it when I was 12, in 1972, when PL had written only one other book. I can understand why this is the only book I chose to keep from my childhood. Beautiful imagery and a powerful use of words that I found fascinating even then. The children seem a little 'old fashioned' now, but the story itself holds firm. My 8 year old son is loving it. I only hope the now fragile and yellow pages will last the distance.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite story 13 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderful story of three children, who inadvertantly bring Morgan le Fay back into power. Based in Oxfordshire, it utilises a famous stone circle, the Whispering Knights.
Written in the typical Lively easy to read style, it's a great children's story with a good mix of magic and modern sensibilities. It has long been one of my favourites and still gets a re-read even though I'm 20 years past the demographic.
