Description

Young Mary Lennox is sent to live with her reclusive uncle, Archibald Craven. All but ignored by Craven, her sickly cousin Colin, and housekeeper Mrs. Medlock, Mary happens upon a secret walled garden. As she starts to work in it, the garden begins to flourish, and so does Mary. Gradually, Mary brings Colin to see the garden, which invigorates him. When moody Uncle Craven returns, he too is cheered by the garden and the friendship that Mary and Colin have formed, and they become an unlikely, but happy, family.
With pink foil and charming art in a collectible hardcover, this is the gift edition every girl needs in her library and will cherish for years to come.

Review quote

It is only the exceptional author who can write a book about children with sufficient skill, charm, simplicity, and significance to make it acceptable to both young and old. Mrs. Burnett is one of the few thus gifted. "The New York Times""
