A classic of the children's book genre. . .
Mary Lennox lived in India and was spoiled rotten by servants who would give her anything to keep her quiet and so from coming to her mother's notice. But cholera strikes, and the orphaned Mary is packed off to England, where her uncle and guardian sends her off to his Yorkshire estate.
Where she interacts with a housemaid, Martha, and the cankterous gardener Ben Weatherstaff, walks about in the garden in the last days of winter, learns about a hidden garden where the key was buried years ago, hears the wind wuthering and the sound of crying, befriends a robin, learns to weed, and many more things
Tasha Tudor's illustrations are an added charm.
