Product Description

Newly orphaned Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle’s gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and lost, and has no one to play with – until she learns of a secret garden hidden somewhere in the grounds, where nobody is allowed to go. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed, and is led by a gust of magic to a hidden door. Slowly she turns the key… and enters a world she could never have imagined. Now with a heartwarming introduction by Sophie Dahl, this spellbinding classic will take your breath away.

    The secret garden is a classic tale of a girl called mary, who’s parents die of cholera in india and she has been sent to mistlethwait manor in yorkshire. This books is one of those books that when you start reading you find it impossible to put it down! I would recommend this book for readers aged 8-12

    The Secret Garden is a masterpiece. It’s such a touching, charming story filled with unforgetable characters. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

    The secret gardens a classic, and I think everyone should read it. I remember reading it in year 5 with class and being utterly entranced by the words and the colour that could be portrayed in such plainly printed pages. I think it was one of the first times I looked at books as a kind of work of art. When I read it again, I just couldn’t put it down. Whether it was the love for a book that can change someone so much, or the sheer fact that it is just so enjoyable, I don’t know, but everyone should read it, I think, as it sets teh standard of literature very high!
