A beautiful contemporary retelling of a much-loved classic, perfect for 8+

Young readers will find much to relate to in this environmental adventure story with a stunning setting and an important message about the natural world

We couldn't wait to get our hands on this retelling of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's book, The Secret Garden. Anthea Simmons has brought the story back to life for a new generation in a way that both children and parents will deeply appreciate. Her love of the natural world sits at the heart of this stunning, inspiring story. Perfect family reading for the summer holidays.


Spoilt rich kid Mia’s world is turned upside-down when she is orphaned and whisked away to Mis Tor Manor on the edge of Dartmoor to live with her uncle and cousin Christopher. Mia is appalled to find herself in the remote countryside, in a freezing, crumbling manor. Grieving and missing her old life, she takes an instant dislike to Christopher, who never leaves his bedroom due to illness.

Yet little by little, Mia starts to discover the beauty of this wintry world, and befriends local boy Daniel, who loves animals and teaches her how to ride a Dartmoor pony. One day she discovers a hidden door, covered in brambles and ivy, which leads to a walled garden … A special, secret place which needs someone’s care to bring it to life once again so nature can flourish.

Anthea Simmons lives in Devon with her polydactyl cat, Caramac. After a successful career in the City and a spell of teaching, she finally knuckled down to write at the insistence of her son, Henry. She is the author of Share, The Best Best Baby, I’m Big Now and Lightning Mary and Burning Sunlight.
