LoveReading View on The Secret Garden (with an Introduction by Sophie Dahl)

This is a book that fires the imagination with its bewitching and magical qualities and one that every young girl will absolutely love.  There’s an Introduction by Sophie Dahl who at the age of nine (the same age as Mary, the heroine in the story) relished secret places just as Mary did.  Sophie’s secret places were the airing cupboard and behind the compost heap in the garden.  In this terrific pocket size Puffin edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who in The Secret Garden plus many related activities to do beyond the book.

From Michael Morpurgo: "I love this story of a girl's life being changed by nature."
