When little Mary comes to live with her uncle in Misselthwaite Manor, she finds herself lost and lonely amidst winding corridors and rooms with closed doors. The house and everything in it is under a pall of gloom ever since the death of her aunt a decade ago. However, Mary soon learns to let go of her inhibitions and responds with warmth to those who work there, finding friendship and happiness.

What happens when Mary discovers a locked door in the garden wall by chance and decides to enter it? One of the most endearing tales of discovering what lies hidden within; The Secret Garden is a magical tale of transformation that has enthralled the young and old over generations.
