Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book :) Such a really good read for anyone. Saw the movie decades ago (would love to get ahold of it and see it again) but never read the book. Just a real inspiring story of courage when all hope was lost. The fact that you also have an 'animal whisper' as a main character was definitely a plus for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for every age Not growing up in an English speaking country I was just recently introduced to The Secret Garden - it was a delight to read and I think it is one of the books you can read time and time again, even or especially during different stages of you life. A little shocking were the harsh realities of the beginning with deseases and deaths .... not something that has changed around the world, but something we tend to think about less and less in our Western society.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Favourite that has stood the test of time. I read this book as a little girl, as a tween, a teenager, and again in college. Now I have a daughter of my own, and I am so glad to share this with her. A classic, a must read. Do not be turned off by badly done tv/movies! Nothing is as good as the original! I also recommend her other books, Little Princess, and the lesser known Little Lord Faunteroy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical! This is THE book of my childhood. It was the first book I read where I became the character and her world and my world were one. I hope every kids gets to have this experience. I refuse to re-read it now and destroy the magic it once held in my heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favourites I've read this book at least twenty times. I had to buy a new copy because the one that was a gift to me as a child was falling apart, that's how good it is. This book is a must read for little girls and grown ups :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret Garden I remember reading this book as a child, and being transported to a garden in my imagination. I loved the characters, the story, the location, the romance (I thought) of being an orphan in England. To this day, as a gardener, the description of that magical secret garden entrances me and informs the goals that I have for my own garden. Of course, in Calgary, a rose-covered bower might be a little difficult, but the idea of the hidden garden, the sudden surprise of it, and the beauty of each of its seasons is what I carry with me from this book.
