Publisher Description

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s charming childhood adventure story is read by Avengers actress Karen Gillan.

The Secret Garden is the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled rich girl who is suddenly orphaned—and sent to live in her uncle’s remote Yorkshire estate. This arrangement does not sit well with Mary…until the day she stumbles upon a locked door that leads into an abandoned garden. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most famous book is an adventure story about a little girl finding and creating her own happiness in a place that at first feels unfamiliar and even scary.

The talented Scottish actress Karen Gillan—who has appeared on-screen in the Avengers movies and on TV’s Doctor Who—narrates this Apple Books exclusive version of Burnett’s much-loved childhood classic, a magical world you won’t want to leave.

Karen should read everything

As a Doctor Who and Secret Garden fan, I may be a bit biased but this is absolutely brilliant!

Splendid reading

The Narrator does a fabulous job with voices. Fun and engaging, this story shows growth and heart.

Too Long

I love the book but I think it is to long maybe they could have turned this into a series or something shorter.
