A personal favourite. A lovely story. A beautiful edition.

"Then she slipped through the door, and shut it behind her, breathing quite fast with excitement, and wonder, and delight. Mary was standing inside the secret garden."

First published in 1911, and written by the acclaimed children's author Frances Hodgson Burnett. THE SECRET GARDEN has entranced readers, both young and old, with the telling of the story of courage and strength of two unhappy and withering children who together, are determined to make their lives and the lives of others around them more joyful. Bringing the magical garden back to life transforms them all!

In this remarkable new edition, Inga Moore's beautifully observed illustrations capture the wonder of the secret garden springing to life under the tender care of three children who become friends. Our heroine, orphan Mary Lennox, her spoiled invalid cousin Colin, who she comes to live with, and brave Dickon, a Yorkshire boy, who befriends them both.

Illustrator Inga Moore tells us: "The image of lonely, sad Mary in the big, bare garden looking up at the little robin bird, singing it's winter song, and seeing this tiny point of colour and life, leaped into my mind and asked to be drawn."

Softcover, with heavy cover flaps. 27 chapters. 279 pages. Full page colour illustrations throughout.
