Publisher: Sterling

Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett; illustrator: Robert Ingpen

Frances Hodgson Burnett's beloved novel is now 100 years old! And, to celebrate this special occasion, Sterling presents a gorgeous new edition of The Secret Garden, illustrated by the acclaimed Robert Ingpen. After her parents' death, Mary Lennox-a plain, sickly, and unloved little girl-leaves her home in India to stay in her uncle's English manor. There, thanks to a very special hidden garden and some wonderful new friends, she undergoes a physical and spiritual transformation that ultimately affects the lives of all around her. Robert Ingpen's stunning art fully captures the story's poignancy and beauty-making this a volume that parents and children will treasure forever. (hb)
