Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Secret Garden, illustrated by Inga Moore
Mary arrives back from India, orphaned and alone, to live with her uncle. Misselthwaite Manor seems to be a dismal place at first, but upon discovering a secret garden, hope slowly grows and blooms for Mary and others at the estate.
A classics from the golden age of children's literature, The Secret Garden is as beautiful as ever in this illustrated edition. Inga Moore, using the sensitivity of a landscape painter, beautifully represents the transformations and beauty of nature.
