Illustrated in full colour, it also features distinctive stained-edging and decorative endpapers. It is suitable for children aged 10 to 13 years old. On the grounds of Misselthwaite, her Uncle's estate near the Yorkshire moors, nine-year-old Mary Lennox finds a walled-in garden that has been locked securely for years. She cultivates the garden, an experience that both improves her health and raises her spirits. And it proves beneficial not only to Mary, but to her sickly cousin Colin too, whom her estranged uncle has locked away in solitude following the death of his beloved wife. Nurtured with love and tenderness, the secret garden proves it has the power to heal the heart. First published in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden" is a much-loved classic of children's literature. This illustrated edition, with full-colour plates by Charles Robinson, features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging and decorative endpapers. It's a book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.
