My Newest Illustrated Book: The Secret Garden
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, with illustrations by Haleigh DeRocher
I am so excited to announce my newest illustrated book: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
There is something so charming about this classic coming of age story. The magic of the garden bursting into life, along with the children, cannot be rivaled.
I have loved this book for a very long time. It is one of my favorite things to read when the weather gets warm. As I work in my garden, pulling weeds and watering and checking my buds, I often ruminate on the story of Mary Lennox and Dickon and Colin. I am so excited to now offer an illustrated edition of this incredible book in my shop. Creating the illustrations for this book was truly a delight.
This beautiful hardcover edition features original cover art and several full color illustrations on the inner pages. It is complete and unabridged. The book will be available exclusively on my website, and will open for pre-order starting on May 1st at 10am CST. All pre-ordered books will receive a free bookplate.
This book measures 6×9. A paperback, black and white edition can be purchased on Amazon.
From the back:
“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles…”
Mary Lennox is a sour, disagreeable girl. Upon the death of her parents, she is sent to England to live with her uncle at Misselthwaite Manor, a vast estate full of secrets, situated on the wild Yorkshire moors. Here, she begins to unearth mysteries…
When Mary discovers the key to a secret garden that hasn’t been tended for ten years, her spirit is kindled. As the days grow warm, she makes friends with creatures and fellow children; she blooms with the flowers. The magic of the garden gives her light, hope, and the courage to continue on.
Published in 1911, The Secret Garden remains one of the world’s most beloved children’s novels. This edition has been lovingly enhanced with original illustrations by Haleigh DeRocher.
