The Secret Garden - Illustrated by Charles Robinson
DescriptionThis vintage book contains Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1911 novel, 'The Secret Garden'. First published as a serial beginning in 1910, it numbers amongst Burnett's most famous works and is widely considered to be a classic of English children's literature. 'The Secret Garden' is the timeless story of Mary Lennox, a sickly girl who is left orphaned and alone when an outbreak of cholera kills her parents and the staff of their home in India. She eventually ends up in Yorkshire with her uncle Archibald Craven, and becomes inspired by the curious story of a nearby 'secret garden' she hears from a neighbour. Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was a seminal American-English playwright and novelist whose notable works include 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (1885-1886), 'A Little Princess' (1905), and 'The Secret Garden' (1911). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition for the enjoyment of a modern readership.

About the Author
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) grew up in England, but she began writing what was to become The Secret Garden in 1909, when she was creating a garden for a new home in Long Island, New York. Frances was a born storyteller. Even as a young child, her greatest pleasure was making up stories and acting them out, using her dolls as characters. She wrote over forty books in her lifetime.
