Mary's transformation begins when she meets a no-nonsense housekeeper, a brusque gardener, and a sprightly robin that leads her to the hidden garden. With the help of Dickon, a boy with an almost supernatural affinity for animals and plants, and Colin, her frail cousin, Mary works in secret to bring new life to the old garden. The three friends find their efforts rewarded not only with all the pleasure that blooming blossoms bring, but also the blessings of good health and high spirits.
Since its initial appearance in 1911, this cherished classic of children's literature by the auto of A Little Princess has enchanted readers. Now available in the unabridged edition, The Secret Garden will continue to charm modern readers of all ages. Recommended especially for ages 9 and up.
