“A key!” cried Mary. “Is it the key to the secret garden?”
This story of a key that leads a lonely girl to a secret garden is a beloved children’s classic. Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s 1911 children’s novel, this retelling, simply and warmly written, will charm young readers. They’ll fall in love with Mary, her gentle friend Dickon, and the beautiful garden they bring to life.
