The Last Green Man
by Ian Pillinger

“What is the meaning of the hidden wall painting in the abandoned Church? Who is Seth? Only the Martyn twins can answer these questions...”

Fantasy and magical young adult tale, The Last Green Man, follows the story of the fourteen-year-old Martyn twins, Jenny and Jake. They are sent to live with their grandparents in a deserted and failing Wiltshire valley, where they must adapt to a very different lifestyle. As they explore their new surroundings, their unexpected arrival is noticed by a mysterious creature emerging from materials ‘borrowed’ from the nearby landscape.

At first, this chaotic assemblage of twigs, leaves and mud is childlike. However, watching and waiting out of sight, the furtive ancient being develops as the twins realise they must face a bewildering sequence of lost secrets...

The truth behind rediscovered local stories encourages the elusive creature to become ‘Seth’, a vagrant who has unsuccessfully appeared in the valley many times previously. Seth reveals himself to the twins as ‘The Last Green Man’, and despairs believing an evil local family will never be overthrown without human intervention. Will Jenny and Jake agree to help or should they stay well away from this creature?

The Last Green Man will appeal to children, aged nine and above, who enjoy reading fantasy and magical fiction. It will also interest those who enjoy adventure stories.
