When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It was true, too. (from the first line)
Ten-year-old Mary comes to live in a lonely house on the Yorkshire moors and discovers an invalid cousin and the mysteries of a locked garden.
From the Publisher:
Frances Hodgson Burnett's celebration of the kingdom of earth takes place in a secret garden, where the orphaned Mary Lennox and the invalid boy, Colin, are magically restored to health and well-being by Nature's mysterious living force. The original illustrations, by Charles Robinson, are perfect visual companions to the rich and illuminating text.
Annotation:
Since its original publication in 1911, this wonderful classic has entranced generations of children with an evergreen mix of orphans, adversity, and a brilliantly honest characterization of children. Nine-year-old Mary Lennox's transformation from a petulant, spoiled child to care-free lass on the moors of England opens as the girl finds herself suddenly orphaned in India. Sent to live with her self-absorbed uncle on his huge estate in Yorkshire, Mary is charmed against her will by the cheerful Dickon, a boy who can charm wild animals. She also discovers Colin, the hidden invalid son of her uncle, who is just as spoiled as she. After Mary finds an intriguing walled garden that had not been taken care of for 10 years, the children immerse themselves in secretly tending it, and through the joy of nurturing living things, grow in health and good spirits themselves.
Author Bio
Frances Hodgson Burnett
Frances Hodgson Burnett and her family moved from their native England to the United States after the death of Frances's father. The family settled in Tennessee; she was 16. Although she is best known for her writing for children, she was first an established novelist and playwright for adults; it was only after the birth of her two sons that she began creating works for children. Her book THE SECRET GARDEN is one of the most popular children's books of all time.

Praise

"A blend of power, beauty, vivid interest, and honest goodness. Yes, if this is magic, it is good magic." - Rumor Godden

"Few books spin such a web of magic about their readers (and listeners) as does this children's classic." - Jim Trelease
