Description

Generations of readers have followed young Mary Lennox through the vine-covered gates of the secret garden. Now, with this gorgeous gift edition of Frances Hodgson Burnett's timeless classic, children of all ages can experience the wonder of one girl's joyous discovery of friendship and hope.

When she arrives at Misselthwaite Manor, the newly orphaned Mary is nearly alone in the world. She passes solitary days exploring her new home, and she soon discovers that her uncle's forbidding mansion holds many secrets. Sections of the building are mysteriously closed off, at night haunting cries echo through empty corridors, and the door to a very special part of the garden has been locked for years--until one day a robin helps Mary unearth the key...

Through the care of Mary and her newfound friend Dickson, a kind local boy, the withered greenery begins to flourish. But the season of magical awakening has just begun. Mary discovers her feeble cousin Colin, and together these two lonely children learn the power of love and tender care to bring what was once thought lost to new and vibrant life.

From Mary's curiosity as she peers into the garden to the warmth of Dickon and the rejuvenation of Colin, the fourteen color plates from Susan Saelig Gallagher capture the real emotions of the children and the beauty of nature, making this unabridged edition the perfect invitation to enter The Secret Garden.
