The Secret Garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1909 classic is a magical and charming children's book. There isn't really much to say apart from that... The story is primarily about Mary, a sour-faced orphan girl who hates everyone and everything, and Colin, a sickly boy who thinks he's going to die. They are saved by their childhood innocence and belief in the power of positive thinking. It was a pleasure to read, if you haven't done so already, I'd definitely recommend it.
