LoveReading View on The Secret Garden (Illustrated by Robert Ingpen)

Sally Nicholls, March 2012 Guest Editor: "I first came across The Secret Garden on story tape as a little girl. I think it's a near-perfect children's book – full of mystery and excitement, but grounded in a child's journey of self-discovery. Hodgson Burnett makes the most ordinary things extraordinary – a robin, a key, a skipping-rope. Brilliant."

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

The Lovereading comment:

An exquisite new edition of the heart-warming tale of Mary, whose life is transformed as she restores an abandoned garden to its former beauty. The book is illustrated throughout with some stunning artwork from the pen of Robert Ingpen.  Coupled with various other classics that Robert has illustrated including Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol and Treasure Island to name just four this is a terrific collection of collectible hardbacks for the nursery bookshelf.  Click here to view all the classics that Robert has illustrated.

the garden reveals its haunting secrets…
