A clothbound, illustrated edition of the infamous children's tale The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnet.
The story takes place in Misselthwaite Manor which holds two mysteries: a strange unhappy crying in the night and a walled garden with a door locked and forgotten for ten years. On the day a robin shows Mary where the key lies buried, the magic begins.
The author, Frances Hodgson Burnett, remembered such a garden from her own childhood and turned it fifty years later into one of the most popular of children's books of all time. In this evocation of a garden's enchantment is a heartfelt belief that the healing power of nature will transform children and adults alike.
