DescriptionWhat secrets lie behind the doors at Misselthwaite Manor? Recently arrived at her uncle's estate, orphaned Mary Lennox is spoiled, sickly, and certain she won't enjoy living there. Then she discovers the arched doorway into an overgrown garden, shut up since the death of her aunt ten years earlier. Mary soon begins transforming it into a thing of beauty--unaware that she is changing too.
But Misselthwaite hides another secret, as mary discovers one night. High in a dark room, away from the rest of the house, lies her young cousin, Colin, who believes he is an incurable invalid, destined to die young. His tantrums are so frightful, no one can reason with him. If only, Mary hopes, she can get Colin to love the secret garden as much as she does, its magic will work wonders on him.

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born in Cheetham, England. She and her family immigrated to the United States after her father died and their financial circumstances became strained. Once in Tennessee, she began to help support her mother and siblings by earning money by writing stories. Over her lifetime, she wrote more than forty books, many of which reflected her own family's riches-to-rags circumstances, including her most well-known novels, A Little Princess and The Secret Garden.
Tasha Tudor (1915-2008) was a Caldecott artist with more than ninety books to her credit. She was known across the world for her glowing watercolor depictions of the American rural scene of a century ago and for her exquisite paintings of children, flowers, and animals.
