    There are three children: Toby, who rides the majestic horse Feste; his mischievous little sister, Linnet; and their brother, Alexander, who plays the flute. The children warmly welcome Tolly to Green Knowe...even though they've been dead for centuries. But that's how everything is at Green Knowe. The ancient manor hides as many stories as it does dusty old rooms. And the master of the house is great-grandmother Oldknow, whose storytelling mizes present and past with the oldest magic in the world.

    In this second book, Tolly returns for Easter vacation to find that the portrait of Toby, Alexander, and Linnet is missing - loaned out by his grandmother to a museum, possibly to be sold at the end of the exhibition because she needs money to mend the roof. Tolly is horrified, and then, with the help of Susan and Jacob (Susan being an ancestor of his from 1800), he learns about Green Knowe during their lifetimes, and, yes, finds the treasure which was lost while they were living.
