Tom's Midnight Garden (Anniversary Edition)

Written by Philippa Pearce

Featured Books for 9+ readers

LoveReading View on Tom's Midnight Garden (Anniversary Edition)

A welcome return of the first edition of this timeless classic story about an enchanted garden and Tom’s midnight adventures in it. Initially horrified at the thought of staying with his aunt and uncle in their poky flat without a garden, Tom hears the clock strike 13 and finds he can enter the house at a different time from his own. How Tom befriends Hatty, a little girl who lived in the house at another time and who also lives in his own time, is a magical story with deep insights into the complex feelings surrounding growing up.

Lovereading comment:

A beautifully produced, limited edition hardback, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this timeless classic. Featuring original setting and illustrations inside, together with original cover artwork, this book will delight fans old and new and will herald this book's rightful place as an all time classic children's book.

Tom's Midnight Garden (Anniversary Edition) Synopsis

When Tom is sent to his aunt's house for the summer he resigns himself to weeks of boredom. Lying awake one night he listens to the grandfather clock in the hall strike every hour. Eleven . . . Twelve . . . Thirteen. Thirteen! Tom rushes down the stairs and opens the back door. There, awaiting him, is a beautiful garden. A garden that shouldn't exist. And there are children in the garden too - are they ghosts? Or is it Tom who is really the ghost . . .
