    1. When the Morgan children, Rowan, Meg, Silly and James, are shipped off to spend the summer in England with an elderly aunt they ve never met, they aren t exactly thrilled But when they arrive at the Rookery, the castle fills their minds with thoughts of exploring and discovering secret passageways.Those fantasies soon pale when they discover that their family is part of an ancient pact connecting them to the fairies who live under the green hill When they realize that one of them must act as cha [...]

    2. This book is a beautiful example of the duality in mythical lore there cannot be light without darkness Perfect book for young readers I estimate grades 5 7 , or adults that still enjoy the magic of well written children s literature The author has set the story to allow for a series to follow which I would love , but there is enough closure for this initial offering to stand alone The main characters are well developed, and supporting characters stay in their places until drawn into the story l [...]

    3. Despite the super cool premise, there was a little too much head hopping for my tastes, which really stalled me from feeling the storyStill a neat little book though

    4. Things I Liked This book had a really rich and detailed atmosphere I loved how I was drawn into the mythology and the setting immediately just as quickly as Rowan is sucked into the fairy war The changeable and unearthly personalities of the fairies was really well done most fairy stories talk about how they are so amoral, but this one really felt that way Meg was a character that you love and that you might get annoyed with at the same time I really enjoyed the writing too, which was quite love [...]

    5. I so wanted to love this book It s modeled on the early 20th century children s books I love, but I felt like the novel could never quite make up its mind whether it was truly trying to be a part of that genre, an homage to it, or gently mocking it The characters never quite came together for me they didn t feel quite real To be honest, I think it might have worked better if it had actually been set in Nesbit s era rather than somewhat awkwardly wedged into our own, despite the timelessness of t [...]

    6. A nice surprise I enjoyed it far than I expected The good people weren t disney fied, characters were complex than expected, I really liked the story, and the ending was satisfyingly complete without being trite I m always impressed when an author knows where the end is I could read it again and find something different, I think This time, I liked the ash trees, and the idea that people don t do now well because the past and future are constantly pressuring them Trees are very now rooted to th [...]

    7. A cute middle grade read When I first started reading it, I thought it was going to be a lot like Fablehaven siblings visiting relatives they really didn t know, and finding out those relatives were in charge of a preserve for mythical creatures Well, not quite The mythical creatures are only fairies, and the relatives are merely guardians for the Green Hill The story and writing are also quite a bit mellow than Fablehaven, but still an interesting world with interesting fairy lore and some int [...]

    8. R I am not that big on fantasy, but I will read it and sort of enjoy it if it is written well Under the Green Hill completely went against that This book followed childeren as they traveled to England to find themselves in the middle of a fairy war It s not a bad plot , it is just so long and written so uninterestingly you ll want to bang your head on a table This book was so boring I almost fell asleep reading it.

    9. Do you like fairies, Esteemed Reader No Is it because of that special documentary on the History Channel that revealed that there have been multiple reports throughout history of folks claiming to have experienced missing time and later recalling that they were abducted by fairies with big black eyes and all gray skin that flew around in a UFO Well, I can t say as how I blame you If it s on the History Channel, it must be true, and you are right to be afraid, Esteemed Reader.Laura L Sullivan s f [...]

    10. Pacing is a little slow and confusing occasionally and there were too many characters that didn t do anything for the story But I enjoyed the concept as a whole.

    11. Thoughts on the Overall Book This was a pleasantly enjoyable read, and while not the best fairy book I have ever read, it had a lot of the traditional tales and such that are always fun to see in such books for lovers of fairy lore Cover Yea or Nay Yes, I love this cover It s so pretty and it obviously states what the book is about.Characters Meg is a nice protagonist I liked her because, even though she s not the oldest of the siblings, she s the oldest girl and kind of takes on a motherly role [...]

    12. I m a bit partial to books about kids in unfamiliar old houses who stumble upon magical worlds Extra points if that old house is in the English countryside Extra, extra points if the kids get caught up in an epic war requiring brave heroics There was never any doubt in my mind that I would love Under the Green Hill.I want to be so very grown up and objective and say that what I found so attractive in this book was its own sense of place in and reverence to the tradition of books about kids in un [...]

    13. There would be scenes where I was delighted by the language and insights into how people relate to one another For example when we first meet Phyllida and Lysander, the author makes the wry comment, When people have lived together for six decades and played as children in the years before that, many of their conversations go by rote, and often entire arguments can take place with a brief glance Some authors don t try to unpack the feelings of grownups to their young readers, but this felt deligh [...]

    17. What a delicious book I savored every page of it and was sorry when it ended In her acknowledgements at the end of the book, the author Laura Sullivan thanks her agent for comparing her work to that of E Nesbit and C.S Lewis The agent is wrong This book EXCEEDS anything that Nesbit and Lewis ever wrote and I don t say that lightly.Our story starts with two mossy stones in the English countryside coming to life Thousands of miles away in America, two college professors prepare to send their 4 chi [...]

    21. I was a lucky winner of this book from Kathryn who put it up for the first reads program.This book was fantastic I m a big fan of the fairy folklore, and all of those older European legend, so it goes with no doubt that I enjoyed reading about it in this story Though it s middle grade literature, and the cover looks rather juvenile, I think that older readers would like this book too because the actual storyline is very fun and adventurous.The characters were all well written,and I found it part [...]

    22. This was a good book for kids to read but a little older kids, middle school is a good age There is a LOT of higher level vocab in this book but the story seems to appeal to younger kids I even tripped over a couple words and had a dictionary next to me just incase I could see younger kids wanting to read this but not quite getting through it I have no idea what the lexile is on it but it s gotta be high because I can see 8th graders struggling with this a little My son s in 6th grade and there [...]
