When orphaned Mary Lennox arrives at Misselthwaite Manor, her uncle's estate, everybody said she was the most disagreeable looking child ever seen. Depressed and withdrawn, Mary stumbles upon an arched doorway into an overgrown garden. She later discovers her pampered invalid cousin, tucked away in a dark room. Soon a charming journey into the magical secret garden begins.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Garden to be better than the print version?

Can't compare. I read the print edition as a young girl and it had beautiful illustrations.

I liked the excitement of Mary finding the garden.

I felt like I was with Mary and her friends to as they had their adventures in the secret garden. Mary finding the key and the entrance behind the ivy was especially exciting.
