The Secret Garden Author:Frances Hodgson Burnett There are few books that have touched so deeply the generations of readers as has Frances Hodgson Burnett's immortal classic. Its special magic is best explained by the book itself: "It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place anyone could imagine. The high walls which shut it in were covered with the leafless stems of roses which were ... more »so thick that they matted together. . . . "No wonder it's still," Mary whispered, "I am the first person who has spoken in here for ten years."
Mary moves to a huge estate and meets the master with a crooked back; his ailing son, Colin; Martha, the maid; and Dickon, the young gardener. Over a million and a half copies of this classic have been sold in hard-cover editions. This is the first paperback edition of THE SECRET GARDEN.
"A blend of power, beauty, vivid interest and honest goodness. Yes, if this is magic, it is good magic."
