The Secret Garden: Pantone Classic

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Secret Garden: Pantone Classic Synopsis

What is the exact colour of the yellow brick road in L. Frank Baum's classic The Wizard of Oz? Or the sprawling green meadows of Prince Edward Island in Anne of Green Gables?The answers lie in Puffin Pantone, a partnership between Puffin Books and Pantone LLC. Combining two beloved household names and creating a line of books that celebrates colour and literature at once. Pairing classic books with their perfect Pantone matches --this is a collection as diverse and boundless as the colour spectrum itself. Young Mary Lennox is sent to live with her reclusive uncle, Archibald Craven. All but ignored by Craven, her sickly cousin Colin, and housekeeper Mrs. Medlock, Mary happens upon a secret walled garden. As she starts to work in it, the garden begins to flourish, and so does Mary. Gradually, Mary brings Colin to seethe garden, which invigorates him. When moody Uncle Craven returns, he too is cheered by the garden and the friendship that Mary and Colin have formed, and they become an unlikely, but happy, family.

The Secret Garden: Pantone Classic Press Reviews

It is only the exceptional author who can write a book about children with sufficient skill, charm, simplicity, and significance to make it acceptable to both young and old. Mrs. Burnett is one of the few thus gifted. --The New York Times
