Frances Hodgson Burnetts' timeless tale The Secret Garden introduces us to a sour little girl. Mary Lennox is NOT a pleasure to be around. In fact, she yells like a little princess, can't make friends, and simply despises everything. She remains quite contrary until she helps her garden grow - and finds someone worse off than herself to bring along for the ride.  Closed off in a creepy manor house on the Yorkshire moors, how can children expect to grow towards the light?
