When a cholera epidemic kills Mary Lennox's family in India, she
is taken to her Uncle Craven's house in the sprawling Yorkshire moors,
Misselthwaite Manor. Previously angry and lonely, Mary grows

Sowerby who tells her that the late Mrs Craven used to love tending
to a private garden in the grounds but following her death, her
Uncle Craven had locked the garden and buried the key. Mary becomes
fascinated by this secret garden and one day miraculously discovers
the key down a badger's hole. As she becomes accustomed to
life in Yorkshire and tending to the secret garden, Mary becomes
