A collectible edition of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved children’s classic, with enchanting illustrations by Charles Robinson

The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary Lennox, a child who is spoiled, unliked, and tragically orphaned. She is sent to live with her uncle, who resides in a magnificent manor in the Yorkshire countryside. Mary discovers a garden tucked away in the manor’s grounds, and as the dilapidated garden transforms, so does the young girl. This book, which powerfully shows the healing power of nature, has resonated with generations of readers.

Now fans of all ages can rediscover The Secret Garden in this beautiful clothbound edition featuring the exquisite color illustrations by Charles Robinson that appeared in the original British edition of 1911. A new introduction by Alice A. Carter, an expert on Golden Age illustration, discusses the earliest illustrators of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s timeless tale.
