Sent to live with her uncle, orphan Mary Lennox uncovers the mysteries of Misselthwaite Manor in The Secret Garden.

Fantastic stories and value for money
This book contains a collection of children's stories, all classics. I use this collection to help me relax and even sleep, and the gentle nature of the stories does just that. Obviously these are children's stories but they appeal to adults too. All the narrators do a great job and the length of the total collection makes it super value for money with just one credit.
You can't go wrong.
