When Mary arrives at her uncle’s manor on the Yorkshire moors, she has no idea what to expect. Soon, however, a robin leads her to the door of a secret garden, a garden no one seems to have touched in years. The magic of the garden soons works upon Mary and her friends, and begins to melt even the iciest of hearts.
Ms. Krysta says: “This graphic novel adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book begins with Mary’s arrival at Misselthwaite Manor, where she immediately finds the entrance to the secret garden. The plot proceeds at a fast pace, showing Mary’s budding friendship with Dickon and Colin, and the ways in which nature works upon the trio to lift their spirits and improve their health. The adaptation shines most with its depiction of blossoming flowers and blooming relationships. A sweet introduction to a beloved story.”
