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:

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.

About the Author

Sophie Dahl was the inspiration for the character Sophie in The BFG, by Roald Dahl, her grandfather, as well as the author of The Man with the Dancing Eyes, a novella.

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.
