On "The Secret Garden"

Title: The Secret Garden
Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett
Main Characters: Mary, Dickon, Colin, Martha, and Ben Weatherstaff
Summary: Mary Lennox's parents die and she is sent to live with her Uncle Craven at Misselthwaite Manor. There she finds out about a garden that no one has entered for 10 years and a robin shows her the key which has been buried. She enters with a boy named Dickon and they help bring the garden back to life. Back at Misselthwaite Manor Mary meets a boy named Colin whom everyone believes will not live and shows him the garden. By the the end of the book, Colin can walk. My favorite part is when Colin stands for the first time.


  1. Don't you wish you had a secret garden? Or at least a pet robin?

  2. Do you think that robins get on well with rats? Yes, I would love a secret garden.

  3. I wonder. They both start with R, at least. :)
