A house full of mystery awaits orphaned Mary Lennox when she comes to live with her uncle on the Yorkshire moors. At night she hears a distant crying that no one will explain, and her uncle is strangely unhappy. But when she meets Dickon, a magical boy who charms both birds and animals, and discovers a walled, locked garden, the secrets of Misselthwaite Manor begin to unfold. When orphaned Mary Lennox, lonely and sad, comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire moors, she finds it full of secrets. At night, she hears the sound of crying down one of the long corridors. Outside, she meets Dickon, a magical boy who can charm and talk to animals. Then, one day, with the help of a friendly robin, Mary discovers the most mysterious wonder of all--a secret garden, walled and locked, which has been completely forgotten for years and years. Is everything in the graden dead, or can Mary bring it back to life?
