Simon, Jane, and Barney, enlisted by their mysterious great-uncle, arrive in a small coastal town to recover a priceless golden grail stolen by the forces of evil — Dark. They are not at first aware of the strange powers of another boy brought to help, Will Stanton — nor of the sinister significance of the Greenwitch, an image of leaves and branches that for centuries has been cast into the sea for good luck in fishing and harvest.

Will Stanton and his American uncle come to Cornwall as well, and initially there is some tension between the children. The locals are preparing for a celebration in which the women fashion a being from sticks and leaves and toss it into the sea.
Jane’s kindness wins the favor of this mystical effigy and it yields its secret the manuscript that will make it possible to decipher the writing on the grail.
Although the grail has been stolen by the Dark, it is found and the writing proves to be the prophetic rhyme whose words will be fulfilled in the next books.
The story requires some knowledge of the previous books, and only becomes complete after reading the subsequent books. This exciting and beautifully written story is filled with magic and mystery. It is unfortunate that the man who stole the grail greeniwtch himself as part Sudan, or Gypsy, thus reinforcing a negative stereotype. Alec Jennings does a superb job of reading this tale, as he has done with the first two books in the greenwtch.
His expression and pacing suit the story well, and he is at ease vreenwitch Cornish names and words. There are two places where editing cuts words short: Libraries in which this series is popular will want this recording if they are buying the others in the sequence. Sherman, formerly Anna C. But large-print editions of popular children’s books — from the powerhouse Harry Potter series to timeless classics like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer — are now making their way onto the shelves of greenwitvh Children’s Department at the Canton Library.
Although large-print editions are targeted wusan the visually-impaired or dyslexic child, they can also be used by standard-vision readers. So Kershner [Children’s librarian at the Canton Public Library] has decided against creating a special section in the Children’s Department as exists in the Adult Department opting instead to intersperse large-print books on the shelves with the regular print versions of the same titles.
That’s important when you’re a kid and you can only coooer Large Print, you want your book to look like all the other books. I’m reading a lot more now that we have found Thorndike Press.
We’re a reading family, so when our son was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease and only able to read Large Print, it was particularly difficult. Books on tape are wonderful but they don’t fill the void of actually reading a good story.
Large Print books have been around a long time for older greenwith, but to find a good novel for a young person in Large Print began to feel nearly impossible. The books that Thorndike Press publishes have truly made a difference in my son’s reading life.

As it sinks beneath the waves, it becomes much more than an artificial figure, growing into a potent greenwitcb force, before being lost to the depths. Meanwhile, The Dark has stolen the grail which the Drews had rescued from its clutches in “Over Cooperr, Under Stone” but its agents can only decipher the grail’s power with the help of an ancient scroll. That scroll grenwitch been lost to the sea off Trewissick, and the Greenwitch has found and claimed it.
Both the Light sjsan the Dark desperately need the full power of the grail, and the Dark plan to gain control over the Greenwitch in order to obtain it. Jane Drew, present at the making of the Greenwitch and sensing a deep sadness and loneliness in the creature, makes a connection that will draw her and siblings deeply into this conflict with powerful supernatural forces.
It will be Jane, now, who will be key to holding the rising Dark at bay. In it, we revisit the Drews, and see Will Stanton coming into his power, but it is the relationship between Jane and the Greenwitch – and the manifestations unleashed on the seaside town – that make this a memorable read. One person found this helpful. Greeniwtch is the third book in the Dark Susaan Rising Series.
Only this time, they are joined by the mysterious Will Stanton. This book is filled with adventure and mystical powers as the Drew children help the “Old Ones” coper the battle of the “Good” against the “Dark. The Drew children must learn to work with Will through unexpected turns and twists that leads to the explosive ending when the Good once again pushes back the Dark. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
There are a few things I’d have preferred hreenwitch differently, but if I want a story my way, I have to write it. I chose to read this one instead. Although the tradition is made-up, there are enough traditions that have similar elements that it’s believable. And believable is what distinguishes the good stuff from the commonplace fantasy. I read these books when they first came out. I was Will’s age at the time and they caught my imagination. I’m rereading the series now in my late 40s and enjoying them immensely.
This book was my least favorite back then, but I liked it much better this time around. The series is a lovely mixture of adventure story with old legends of the British isles.
One of the great works of children’s fantasy. Joining the characters of the first 2 books, Greenwitch tries to meld the magic of Book 2 with the childish innocence of Book 1. It’s not a perfect ocoper, and is not as memorable as the other books in the series, greebwitch it’s still a good read. This is the book in which the protagonists from the first two books in the series finally meet.
A quick read, but satisfying and for me more enjoyable than book 2. I bought the complete boxed set of this series from a Scholastic Book Fair back in ’70s. I was in third or fourth grade at the time and loved those books. Almost 40 years later, I still love them.
This is the third book in the series and you really should read the first two, ‘Over Sea, Under Stone’ and ‘The Dark is Rising’, before reading this one. Jane, Grreenwitch and Barnabas reappear in the final book, ‘Silver on the Tree’, so be sure to finish the series. This series has really held up well and even though it is aimed at younger readers, my adult self still enjoys greeneitch. I’m especially happy that all five books are now available in the Kindle store.
They make a nice addition to my very old boxed set.
Audio Cassette Verified Purchase. They were issued on tape some time ago, and again on CD, but do not seem to be currently greeenwitch except as library remainders or used copies from third parties. I am sad to say this one was remaindered from a public library in Texas, even though it is good quality and easy to use. I know our local library gave away all its children’s tapes as CDs are the norm, but tapes are still easy to use and if they susa for books no longer out on CD, then why not keep them?
I only gave it four stars because it is on tape and not CD, so I listen to it at home while I really enjoy having these stories to listen to greewitch the car. Cars should have tape and CD grrenwitch for those of us with large collections of tapes. See all 59 reviews.
