HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.'Where, you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow.'After the sudden death of her wealthy parents, spoilt Mary Lennox is sent from India to live with her uncle in the austere Misselthwaite Manor on the Yorkshire Moors. Neglected and uncherished, she is horribly lonely, until one day she discovers a walled garden in the grounds that has been kept locked for years. When Mary finds the key to the garden and shares it with two unlikely companions, she opens up a world of hope, and as the garden blooms, Mary and her friends begin to find a new joy in life.Serialised in 1910 and first published in its entirety in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett's enchanting novel of friendship and rejuvenation is one of the greatest classics of children's literature.
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was an English-American author and playwright. She is best known for her incredibly popular novels for children, including Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic A classic novel for youth. Quite enjoyed the descriptions of life, food and protocol back then. Interesting read and very nice history lesson at same time. Queer was a little overused though in the novel! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite childhood books. I remember reading this in elementary school for a project. At first, I couldn't get into it and but by the third and fouth chapter i was hooked and finished the book in one day. This is such a classic novel and a great read for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an incredible book! I first read this book as a kid, and I loved it then. I bought this book for my kids and they love it too! The simple, yet strong story line really draws any reader into Burnett's world about a secret garden that can only be opened by a key. Truly a classic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a beautifully written and timeless classic that readers will quickly fall for. With a sophisticated British vibe, and an interesting plot, this won't be a story that will be forgotten. My sole complaint is the Yorkshire accent that was a bit difficult to follow, but I quickly got used to it. Other than that, The Secret Garden is simply splendid to read.
