A beautiful hardcover edition of a timeless classic, with illustrations by Lauren Child. Young, orphaned Mary Lennox is sent to live with her reclusive uncle, Archibald Craven.

With an unjacketed fabric cover, six full color plates, and colored endpapers, everything about this hardcover edition is high-end and luxurious.

About Frances Hodgson Burnett

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born in Manchester. She had a very poor upbringing and used to escape from the horror of her surroundings by writing stories. In 1865 her family emigrated to the USA where she married and became the successful author of many children's books including The Secret Garden, A Little Princess and Little Lord Fauntleroy. Lauren Child is one of today's most talented and innovative children's writer/illustrators. Winner of the Nestle Smarties Book Prize and the Kate Greenaway Medal, she is best known for creating the characters Clarice Bean and the BAFTA-award-winning Charlie and Lola. She is co-creator of The Princess and the Pea and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
