The Secret GardenBook - 2010
From Library Staff
This classic children's novel is getting a new adaptation, with Colin Firth now playing Uncle Archibald Craven after playing cousin Colin in a 1987 adaptation.
A classic story about the power of friendship and kindness. I loved these characters and their transformation throughout this book.
Children's classic originally published in 1909.

That night Colin slept without once awakening, and when he opened his eyes in the morning he lay still and smiled without knowing it-smiled because he felt so curiosly comfortable. It was actually nice to be awake, and he turned over and stretched his limbs luxuriously."
