A picture book retelling, perfect for the youngest readers, of the beloved classic children's story--and new movie starring Colin Firth, coming to theaters April 2020.

"A key!" cried Mary. "Is it the key to the secret garden?"

This story of a key that leads a lonely girl to a secret garden is a beloved children's classic. Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1911 children's novel, this retelling, simply and warmly written, will charm young readers. They'll fall in love with Mary, her gentle friend Dickon, and the beautiful garden they bring to life. And the lush pictures by Brigette Barrager, illustrator of Uni the Unicorn, will let young children feel they've entered the garden themselves.
