The Secret Garden

by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

When spoiled rich girl, Mary Lennox, is orphaned, she is shipped from India to live in her uncle’s enormous manor in faraway England. The lonely girl is forbidden to play in most of the imposing house – struggling to adjust to her new surroundings, she goes out into the grounds every day. Before long, Mary finds a key to a secret garden that has been left untouched for ten years, and a whole new world of enchantment opens up to her. For the first time she learns to make friends – with the talented animal-charmer, Dickon, and her sickly cousin, Colin, who has been hidden away behind closed doors – and between them, the three children truly flourish as the garden reveals its haunting secrets.

First published in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s story is one of the best-loved children’s books of the early twentieth century. Marking the centenary of the novel, this beautiful new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text with over 70 evocative illustrations and botanical studies by the award-winning artist Robert Ingpen

Illustrator Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads. He studied illustration art and book design at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world. www.robertingpen.com
