Synopses & Reviews
After the death of her parents, the neglected and spoiled heroine Mary Lennox is sent to her uncle's large and lonely house on the Yorkshire Moors. There she discovers a secret garden and with the help of a strange, new, animal-charming friend Dickon, not only restores the garden but in the process transforms herself from a sullen, unhappy child to an unselfish, happy one, and helps to cure her sick cousin, and to rehabilitate his gloomy grief-stricken father.
Along with Frances Hodgson Burnett's other great work, Little Lord Fauntleroy, The Secret Garden stands as one of the most successful children's novels ever written. This is the only annotated edition available and the first to treat the novel as a serious work of literature.
