Author(s): Frances Hodgson Burnett
A gloriously illustrated new edition of the classic story, retold for the young and young at heart.
Mary Lennox has grown up in India, in a world of colour and light. So, when she is orphaned and sent back to England to live with her Uncle in his grey and gloomy mansion, it seems she will never be happy again. But a mysterious cry in the dark, and a hidden gate in an overgrown garden, may lead her to the greatest happiness she has ever known.
Frances Hodgson Burnett was a born storyteller. Even as a young child, her greatest pleasure was in making up stories and acting them out, using her dolls as characters. She wrote over forty books, including the classic A Little Princess.
