This is a must-read for children and adults, especially if you missed out on this while growing up.

There was a girl called Mary Lennox, she grew up in India, and was extremely fawned on by the servants, whose only job was to keep her quiet and out of the way of her parents. Suddenly, her parents die and she's sent to live with her uncle in England, a grumpy old man who happened to be mourning the loss of his wife. When orphaned Mary Lennox arrives at Misselthwaite Manor, her uncle's estate, everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. Her uncle wants nothing to do with her. Lonely, spoiled Mary explores the manor and the garden, finding all sorts of hidden secrets as well as her own happiness.

It's just the kind of story that will leave you feel warm and comfortable inside!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlock the door 5 Jan. 2015
By Quill - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A true classic, yes, particularly with the Tasha Tudor illustrations--and please make sure to avoid any abridged editions. Ms. Burnett's tale of two unhappy, neglected children and one well-loved one is dreamy and beautiful. It includes a heroine with spunk and gorgeous descriptions of the Yorkshire countryside.

That said, this book includes very prejudiced views of Indians and India, and while they are a child's POV and (unfortunately) culturally historical, any adult giving or reading this book to a child should preface it with an explanation of how such views are very wrong.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT ONE ILLUSTRATION!!!! False Advertising! 3 Mar. 2015
By BookLover - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WHERE are the illustrations?!? NOT ONE, other than the cover! What a joke. This is just a sham for someone to make a buck, literally, at the expense of children, no less. The cover states there is a recipe and activities inside. NOPE! Nothing. Spend your money on books that actually have illustrations, is that is what you want.

This is a classic and worth downloading. I'm reading it to my granddaughter and passing on the love of the classics. I have read this wonderful book several times as a child and as an adult and will probably read it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was drawn to read it again and this time I was amazed at the beauty of the writing 26 May 2015
By Simone Christie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book as an 8th grader and could not appreciate it. However, I was drawn to read it again and this time I was amazed at the beauty of the writing. The story tracks the life of little British orphan girl Mary (from India) who goes to live with her uncle in England and discovers a whole new world of family, people and places. Mary, along with other characters in the book, undergoes massive transformation in personality in line with the transformation that happens in the Secret Garden as it changes from Winter to spring.

This is a beautiful book on growing up!
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 30 May 2015
By Dina Sjursen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a true classic. Written with the thoughtful mind of Francis Hodgson Burnett, this book shines in it's own light .She might be sour, but 10 year old Mary Lennox can not hide her curiosity about what might be beyond the Missltwite Manor walls. The outdoors have changed this child. She finds many interesting characters that shine in their own light. This garden that she finds has a deep and rich history. Mary is just a lonely child waiting for earth and company.
