The Secret Garden

Author(s): Frances Hodgson Burnett

Kids' Classics (fairy tales, poetry etc)

Penguin presents the UNABRIDGED audio CD edition of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, read by Indira Varma. A magical story for adults and children alike.


'I've stolen a garden,' she said very fast. 'It isn't mine. It isn't anybody's. Nobody wants it, nobody cares for it, nobody ever goes into it. Perhaps everything is dead in it already; I don't know.'


After losing her parents, young Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle's gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and has no one to play with, but one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed - and a gust of magic leads her to the hidden door. Slowly she turns the key and enters a world she could never have imagined.
