Take a look inside The Secret Garden – our new Nosy Crow classic

This September we’re absolutely delighted to be publishing the fifth title in our Nosy Crow Classics collection, The Secret Garden – a beloved children’s classic, beautifully retold by bestselling and award-winning author, Geraldine McCaughrean.

Like the other books in this collection, The Secret Garden will be published in a gorgeous cloth-bound hardback format, with a stunning foiled jacket, luxurious paper and a ribbon marker.

With enchanting artwork by Margarita Kukhtina, which brings this wonderful classic to life, this is a truly special book for young children and a timeless keepsake to be treasured for generations.

When Mary Lennox is sent from India to live with her uncle at gloomy Misselthwaite Manor, she is the most spoiled and contrary child you could ever meet. But she is also extremely lonely. Until one day, she discovers a walled garden that has been kept secret for years. With the help of a little robin, Mary unearths the key and unlocks the wonder that lies beyond the garden walls – and finds that making friends can be every bit life-changing as a magical garden.

A digital preview does not do this sumptuous book justice, but here’s a look inside:

The Secret Garden will be out this September – you can pre-order a copy from Waterstones here, Bookshop.org here, or Amazon here.
