When his brother catches measles, Tom is sent away for the summer to stay with his uncle and aunt and is thoroughly fed up about it. What a boring summer it's going to be. But then, lying in bed one night, he hears the old grandfather clock in the hall strike the very strange hour of 13 o'clock. What can it mean? As Tom creeps downstairs and opens the door, he finds out...a magical garden, a new playmate, and the adventure of a lifetime. Una Stubbs stars as Aunt Gwen in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.More

Beautiful story, well read
An enjoyable children's tale I remember well from my childhood.
I was filled with excitement as they skated down the river.
The dramatization really brought the book to life and immersed me into Tom's world.
No spoilers here - the ending is very lovely.
This is a relatively short book that I loved listening to over the course of an evening. Worth a listen if you read this as a child and a wonderful story to introduce to your own children.
