From Michael Morpurgo: "I love this story of a girl's life being changed by nature."
When newly orphaned Mary Lennox arrives from India to live with her uncle, everyone at Misselthwaite Manor thinks her a most disagreeable child. Then one day she discovers a garden - a secret garden. With the help of Dickon and her spoilt, invalid cousin, Mary brings the garden back to life, and as she does, the mystery behind it is revealed.
A word from the illustrator, Inga Moore:
'The Secret Garden is one of the greatest books for children of all time and it took me a long while to pluck up the courage to illustrate it. What made me think I could do it justice? I knew a merely decorative approach wouldn't do for a work with such depth of meaning so I decided to bring out as much of its meaning as I could in my pictures, carefully placing them next to the words they illustrated in the hope that the two together would make a more vivid whole.'
