When newly orphaned Mary Lennox arrives from India to live with her uncle, everyone at Misselthwaite Manor thinks her a most disagreeable child. Then one day she discovers a garden - a secret garden, locked and hidden for ten long years. With the help of Dickon and her spoilt, invalid cousin, Colin, Mary brings the garden back to life; and as she does, the mystery behind it is revealed. "The Secret Garden" has been cherished by generations of readers since its publication in 1911, when it was heralded as an instant classic.
