The magic of a fairy tale, yet real enough to believe,
This review is from: The Secret Garden (Audio Cassette)
To be ten or twelve and reading this is heaven. To have your ten or twelve year old read it, is also heavenly. Read it in winter, and spring will be in your heart before it is through!
The tale of a stubborn child who changes with the help of some unlikely friends to work miracles in a secluded garden: it is a story of healing and adventure, without coming off sappy or silly. Remarkable in its telling, it is timeless in its appeal. For those who might not have read it, The Secret Garden has a "Harry Potter" sort of flavor, with characters that are so well written you might feel you know them. I read it more than once as a child, and as an adult I re-read it every few years.
