This beautiful edition of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s cherished children’s story brings together the complete and unabridged text with over seventy evocative illustrations and botanical studies by the award-winning artist Robert Ingpen.

When spoiled rich girl, Mary Lennox, is orphaned, she is shipped from India to live in her uncle’s enormous manor in faraway England. Before long, Mary finds a key to a secret garden that has been left untouched for ten years, and a whole new world of enchantment opens up to her. For the first time she learns to make friends – with the talented animal-charmer, Dickon, and her sickly cousin, Colin, who has been hidden away behind closed doors – and together they reveal the garden’s haunting secrets.

A full-colour illustrated edition of one of the world’s best loved stories.


‘Ingpen’s drawings are utterly compelling’ – Michael Morpurgo

Reviews

The Times
The Secret Garden should be on every child's bookshelf
Malorie Blackman, Telegraph
The mystery element kept me turning the pages but it was the superb characterisation that made the story stay with me. It taught me that it's never too late to remake yourself into someone better
Alison Lurie
One of the most original and brilliant children's books
New York Times
A blend of power, beauty, vivid interest and honest goodness. Yes, if this is magic, it is good magic
Sophie Dahl
Even the most cynical reader would be hard pressed to remain unmoved by The Secret Garden. There is an old-fashioned tenderness and joy to it; the sense that magic happens if you are observant and quiet and know it will.
