Synopsis

The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, has remained one of the most popular children’s books since its publication in The American Magazine in 1910. The story tells of childhood emotions and experiences while keeping the central theme - if something is cared for, it will thrive.  The Secret Garden  introduces us to a sour little girl, Mary Lennox, who 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.  Burnett was a British American novelist and playwright, best known for her novels  Little Lord Fauntleroy , A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden . She regularly found inspiration through her observations of nature and the walled gardens at Maytham Hall in Kent England. The American Magazine published the first edition of The Secret Garden  in 1910
