This is a rare, moving story, beautifully written and true in every way that matters. It should become a modern classic. --The Guardian
About the Author
Philippa Pearce was born in 1920 and spent her childhood in Great Shelford, south of Cambridge, where her father was a flour-miller. The village and the river that ran by the mill played a large part in shaping her stories, especially Minnow on the Say and Tom's Midnight Garden. For most of her adult life she lived within a few yards of her childhood home.
After she graduated from Cambridge in 1942, she worked as a children's book editor, and as a scriptwriter and producer for BBC Radio. She won a number of awards for her children's books, including the Carnegie Medal for Tom's Midnight Garden. In 1997 she was awarded an OBE for services to Children's Literature. She died in 2006, aged 86."

This is a true classic for all time. Buy it today.
Are Hattie and the others all ghosts? Or is Tom a ghost himself, visiting a real world? Or is he time-travelling back through time when the clock strikes thirteen? Tom becomes obsessed with his midnight garden, wanting to spend more and more time in it - but with every visit Hattie grows a little older. Time is running out.
An intriguing tale; mysterious, atmospheric - and enchantingly written. The ending is genuinely moving. The modern-day segments of the story seem a little dated now, but in a time-slip story this really doesn't matter. A classic book that has stood the test of time - a true childhood favourite.

A wonderful story, I never tire of. But why did the BBC need to cut it down so much and introduce loud intrusive music. I found that very irritating. Read morePublished 4 months ago by JH
