A retelling of the beloved classic for the youngest readers, in honour of the 75th anniversary of Little Golden Books!
"A key!" cried Mary. "Is it the key to the secret garden?"
This story of a key that leads a lonely girl to a secret garden is a beloved children's classic. Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's children's novel published in 1911, this retelling, simply and warmly written, will charm youngsters. They'll fall in love with Mary, her gentle friend Dickon, and the beautiful garden they bring to life.
Little Golden Books have been loved by children for over 75 years. When they were first published in 1942, high-quality books for children hadn't been available at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased by the hundreds of thousands. Created by such talented writers as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children develop a lifelong love of reading. Today, Little Golden Books feature beloved classics, plus new, original stories-the classics of tomorrow-ready to be discovered between their sturdy cardboard covers and gold-foil spines.
