How I loved The Secret Garden as a child - the slow-building, spellbinding sense of magic, the enchantment of nature, the gradual, glowing, transformative friendship between (initially moody, miserable) Mary and Dickon. While the period The Secret Garden evokes is very different from our own, the magical elements at its heart radiate through the particulars of its age. And what better way to introduce today’s young readers to the magic than with this Wordsworth Collector’s Edition? With a stylishly illustrated cover - replete with gold foil - and lovely hardback format, this will add plenty of panache to home and school libraries. Beautiful Books - Wordsworth Collector's Editions - The latest series for people that love beautiful books.
A stunning new edition with deluxe cover treatments, ribbon markers, luxury endpapers and gilded edges. The unabridged text is accompanied by a Glossary of Victorian and Literary terms produced for the modern reader. An enduring children's classic, The Secret Garden (1911) is as enchanting as it is moving. Orphaned after the death of her parents in a cholera epidemic, Mary Lennox is sent from India to her uncle's home in England, the remote Misselthwaite Manor. Alienated from her surroundings, she initially takes against the cold, gloomy house and the seemingly barren Yorkshire landscape. However, her spirits begin to improve as she sets out in search of the manor's long-neglected secret garden. As Mary unlock the mysteries of her new home, a powerful tale of redemption and regeneration unfolds. The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library.
