Her father who held an important position in the English Government in India, has no time to look at her or talk to her. We read The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Brunnett and illustrated by Inga Moore. This is a story of re-awakening of spirits, of growing to love and live and finding happiness in most unusual places and people.

Coloring books are an important toy for little ones because of their tactile and interactive nature. I’ve been in a big reading slump lately, but I recently went to see a stage production of The Secret Garden, and it inspired me to reread the book.
I definitely picked up on a lot more of the subtle characterisation now that I’m older. This entry was posted in Books, Reviews and tagged children, fiction, historical, historical fiction, reread, young adult by Kriti Godey.
When she finds herself being shipped off to an uncle who is hunch-backed and lives in an old desolate place, Mary simply looks disinterested.


And later in the story she meets Colin, her cousin, who like herself needs some of the special magic that makes Mary a little less contrary.
Adult coloring books has become its own niche with a wave of new entrants from major publishers. The Oberlin Summer Theater Festival produced it, and as usual, the sets, direction and acting were all top-notch (although adult actors playing ten year old characters was a bit jarring).
Burnett has an engaging writing style, and even though her exposition can be a bit preachy, it rings true enough to be entertaining. Sometimes Burnett is pretty moralistic, and the serendipitous Magic that everything good is blamed on seems a bit hokey to me (but these days, everyone is taught to take charge of their own life and make stuff happen themselves, not depend on the universe’s goodwill – another sign of the cultural shift since the book was written). But Mary is secretly intrigued by the stories about Misselthwaite Manor and its inhabitants. Medlock seems unsympathetic at first, but she’s just used to minding her own business, Dr. It is a book with ten year old protagonists, though, and I can distinctly remember being in awe of the wonders of the world then, so maybe I shouldn’t fault it.
Thin faced and with a thin body, with thin hair and a sour expression on her face, Mary Lennox never smiles.
The aayah’s were strictly told to keep the child away from the parents if they were to keep the parents pleased.
I will leave you to fall in love with this story because one can make such promises of stories like these!


We also heard the audio book, narrated by the most talented Finola Hughes (Best known for her award worthy work in TV series General Hospital). I hadn’t read it for about ten years though, so I was wondering how it would hold up. Craven is not terribly invested in his patient’s recovery, but he still holds to his Hippocratic Oath pretty strongly. Governess’ were provided to teach, but none of them stayed long enough as they grew to dislike the child very much!
Martha, the housemaid, who tells her stories about her mother and brothers and sisters all living in a small cottage at the edge of the moor. Her outstanding narration of the story alternating between British English and Yorkshire English is charming and adeptly executed.
Dickon (Brian Roper), the brother of one of the house maids, tells her of a garden secreted behind a hidden door in a vine-covered wall. And Dickon, a 12 year old boy with a pony who is Martha’s brother, who shows her to grow things.
