This book has a vivid atmosphere (a rainy Yorkshire moor, beautiful language, and one of my favorite characters in classic literature (Dickon!). And, provided you can ignore the imperialist bits, this story still has a meaningful message for children and adults today.

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.



Tasha Tudor's detailed, delicate artwork has been cherished by millions of readers. She illustrated nearly one hundred books, and received multiple awards and honors, including two Caldecott Honors.
