In this beloved story, travel with Mary Lennox, a spoiled and sullen orphan, from colonial India to Misselthwaite Manor, a forbidding estate on the Yorkshire moors. There, in the unlikeliest of places, Mary discovers and helps restore an abandoned garden and, in the process, blossoms herself into a creature of loving kindness.
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.
A spoiled and sickly orphan blossoms into a creature of loving kindness in this unforgettable classic of childhood. At her uncle's forbidding Yorkshire estate, Mary joins with new friends in the restoration of an abandoned garden and discovers the pleasures of blooming flowers, friendship, good health, and high spirits. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
