Waterstones Says

A pastoral classic of the Edwardian Golden Age, The Secret Garden continues to enchant and entertain over a century after its original publication. Spoilt children, an oppressive country pile and the most wondrous playground of flora and fauna combine perfectly to create a truly iconic children’s novel.     

"People never like me and I never like people," Mary thought.

When Mary Lennox is sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle, everybody says she is the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It is true, too. Mary is pale, spoilt and quite contrary. But she is also horribly lonely. Then one day she hears about a garden in the grounds of the Manor that has been kept locked and hidden for years. And when a friendly robin helps Mary find the key, she discovers the most magical place anyone could imagine...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Secret Garden should be on every child's bookshelf.' - The Times

'The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is my "current" favourite children's book. I reread it to my six-year-old daughter last summer and both of us loved it - although she did require me to have a go at the full Yorkshire accent for Dickon, which proved a little bit tricky. It has magic, darkness, whimsy and truth and the fact that it was first published in 1909 yet still managed to enthral my 21stcentury daughter is a testament to its greatness.' - Kirsty Young

'The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a wonderful story that I could think myself into, given that the heroine is the sort of awkward little girl that I thought I was. I loved the idea of a secret place where children could be on their own.' - Nina Bawden

'Mary is a tough feisty character, who manages to turn a whole household, and the lives of those in it, completely upside down... The book is brim full of magic and joy.' - Sunday Telegraph
