Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After losing her parents, young Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle's gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and has no one to play with, but one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed — and a gust of magic leads her to the hidden door. Slowly she turns the key and enters a world she could never have imagined.

With a heartwarming introduction by children's author and granddaughter of Roald, Sophie Dahl, The Secret Garden is one of the twelve best-loved classic stories being relaunched in Puffin Classics to celebrate Puffin's dedication to publishing the most innovative and imaginative children's literature for generations.

Synopsis:

Puffin Classics: the stories you love, the name you trust.

“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.”

Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to settle in and make friends at boarding school. But when she learns that she'll never see her beloved father again, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury, for hard work and a room in the attic. Will she find that kindness and generosity are all the riches she truly needs?

Synopsis:

When you think classics, think Puffin!

Follow Alice on a wild adventure!

Alice lives an ordinary life, until the day she follows the White Rabbit down, down, down a rabbit hole. She suddenly finds herself in an enchanted world, surrounded by zany creatures like the Mad Hatter, the Duchess, and the Cheshire Cat. Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordinary. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes an introduction by Chris Riddell, the illustrator best known for his artwork in books by Neil Gaiman.

About the Author

Oh gosh, what a lovely book! I wish I had read this as a child because there is such wisdom in this little gem. Such as, our thoughts can either make us feel more alive or crush us depending on what we allow ourselves to think about. Also, (and luckily I discovered this early on) that there is Magic in being outside among growing things and creatures. In addition, this is a finely written book and a joy to read.

The Secret Garden is now one hundred years old. It is a New Thought novel for adults that children have embraced. It is "The Secret" for children. A must-read classic.
