The Secret Garden (Puffin Classics)by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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?
When you think classics, think Puffin!
