The Secret Gardenby Frances Hodgson Burnett
Synopses & Reviews
The beloved original text now offered in a beautiful paperback edition by esteemed illustrator Inga Moore.
First published in 1911, The Secret Garden has entranced readers with the courage of two unhappy and withering children who become determined to make their lives, and the lives of others around them, more joyful. In this engaging unabridged edition, Inga Moores beautifully observed illustrations capture the magic of the secret garden springing to life under the tender care of Mary Lennox; her spoiled invalid cousin, Colin; and Dickon, a nature-loving Yorkshire boy.
Hear The Secret Garden
Read by Jenny Agutter, who appeared in Peter Pan with the British National Theatre.
Mary Lennox doesn't want to move to England to live with her uncle, but she has no choice. At first she hates her uncle's cold house, the gardens and moors that surround it and the servants with their funny way of talking. And at night she hears a child crying, but the servants insist it's only the wind. Curious in spite of herself, Mary wanders the house and gardens and discovers that both are full of secrets.
