The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of the best loved stories in children’s literature, The Secret Garden brings nature alive in the story of how Mary Lennox, a lonely, unhappy and spoilt child is transformed by finding her way into a hidden garden. Brought to her Uncle’s house in Yorkshire after the death of her mother, Mary has no friends and no occupation. Used to being waited she is selfish and mean spirited. But when Mary unlocks the door to the garden she not only finds the wonders of nature as the flowers and trees grow and bear fruit but she also finds a friend in Dickon, the kindly gardener’s boy. How Mary, and her wheelchair bound cousin Colin are transformed by the garden remains as magical as when it was first written.
The Good Book Guide Review. The discovery of a mysterious and neglected garden is the key which unlocks the future of two hitherto lonely children. Mary, recently orphaned, and Colin, who is thought to be bedridden.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place any one could imagine. When spoiled, rude Mary Lennox is sent to live in her uncle's lonely house on the moors, she is miserable and alone. Then one day she discovers the key to a locked garden, and she discovers the beauty that life can offer.
This Heritage edition of this best-loved tale features the gorgeous 1911 colour illustrations by renowned illustrator Charles Robinson.
