Synopsis
Tor Classics are affordably-priced editions designed to attract the young reader. Original dynamic cover art enthusiastically represents the excitement of each story. Appropriate "reader friendly" type sizes have been chosen for each title—offering clear, accurate, and readable text. All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.

This edition of The Secret Garden includes a Foreword, Biographical Note, and Afterword by Jane Yolen.

May is sullen and ugly. Orphaned, unloved and left alone, she has no reason to live. Colin is twisted and dying. Crippled, vicious, rejected by his own family, he has no hope to live. But Dickon is strange and wild. He sleeps on the moors, calls animals to him, and speaks the language of flowers--all he knows is how to live.

And a bird of early spring leads them all to a mystery. A walled garden filled with ghosts of love and loss. Only Mary can unlock the garden's hidden door. Only Dickon can find the green pulse within the dead land. And only Colin can summon forth an ancient power that might give two lost children the strength to survive...

They thought the power in the secret garden was magic. It was.

Amazon.com Review
Mistress Mary is quite contrary until she helps her garden grow. Along the way, she manages to cure her sickly cousin Colin, who is every bit as imperious as she. These two are sullen little peas in a pod, closed up in a gloomy old manor on the Yorkshire moors of England, until a locked-up garden captures their imaginations and puts the blush of a wild rose in their cheeks; "It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place any one could imagine. The high walls which shut it in were covered with the leafless stems of roses which were so thick, that they matted together.... 'No wonder it is still,' Mary whispered. 'I am the first person who has spoken here for ten years.'" As new life sprouts from the earth, Mary and Colin's sour natures begin to sweeten. For anyone who has ever felt afraid to live and love, The Secret Garden's portrayal of reawakening spirits will thrill and rejuvenate. Frances Hodgson Burnett creates characters so strong and distinct, young readers continue to identify with them even 85 years after they were conceived. (Ages 9 to 12)
