Reader's note

This illustrated classic is one of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most popular novels: The Secret Garden. This beautiful blue-covered book tells the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled, contrary, solitary child raised in India but sent to live in her uncle’s manor in Yorkshire after her parents' death. She is left to herself by her uncle, Mr. Craven, who travels often to escape the memory of his deceased wife. Mary becomes intrigued by the prospect of a forgotten garden, and her quest to find out the garden's secrets leads her to discover other secrets hidden in the manor. These discoveries combined with the unlikely friendships she makes along the way help her come out of her shell and find new fascination with the world.
