Frances Hodgson Burnett's engrossing story of secrets and discoveries, brought to life in a new book-plus-audio edition.

Mary Lennox doesn't want to move to England to live with her uncle, but she has no choice. At first she hates her uncle's cold house, the gardens and moors that surround it and the servants with their funny way of talking. And at night she hears a child crying, but the servants insist it's only the wind. Curious in spite of herself, Mary wanders the house and gardens and discovers that both are full of secrets.

The Secret Garden is read by Jenny Agutter, who appeared in Peter Pan with the British National Theatre.

With the included audio you can HEAR the entire book, word for word, READ ALONG with the audio, or READ the story on your own.

Each HEAR IT READ IT classic presents the world's greatest stories in an easy-to-read abridged format. The included audio contains a dramatic reading-with music and sound effects-that match the text, word for word, so children of all ages and reading levels can read along.

Perfect for high-level young readers experiencing the classics for the first time and also ideally accessible for "reluctant readers," HEAR IT READ IT classics give young readers the best possible introduction to the world's timeless tales. It's a terrific way for adults to re-experience the thrills of a classic tale, too!
