Title: The Secret Garden

Mary Lennox is a ten-year-old girl. Her parents never cared for her so she wasn’t even sad when they died of the cholera. She’s sent to Misselthwaite Manor, where her uncle lives. Mary is really an uncaring little girl who never likes anyone and isn’t interested in anything exept herself. But at Misselthwaite Manor she learns to like things and people. With Dickon and Colin, her new friends, she plays in the mysterious secret garden she has found and opened for them.

Dickon Sowerby is Martha’s little brother. He’s two years older than Mary and her cousin. He can talk with animals and owns a rook, two squirrels and a fox. When Mary meets him, they go together into the garden; he is the one who told her that the garden was still alive. Together they plant flowers and try to make the garden as beautiful as it was before. Colin and Mary learn a lot of new things from Dickon.

Colin Craven is ten years old like Mary. When he was born, his mother died. He’s very fragile and can’t walk. Everyone thinks he won’t live to grow up. When he meets Mary he starts to change. With Mary and Dickon he goes out into the secret garden, which his father had locked at his mother’s dead. He learns to walk and starts to live like a normal ten-year-old boy.



Mary Lennox lives with her rich parents in India. No one has ever really cared for her; hardly anyone knows she is even there. One day a cholera epidemic breaks out and nearly everyone dies. Mary hides in the nursery and when she wakes up the next morning, there is no one left. She is sent to England where her uncle, Archibald Craven, lives. A woman called Medlock is sent to take her to the manor. Normally the 500 year old Misselthwaite Manor on the Yorkshire moors isn’t a place for a child to grow up. There are about a thousand rooms, hundreds locked, so no one can go in. There is a big mystery about a secret garden that had been locked up ten years ago. A young housemaid called Martha has to look after Mary. First Mary doesn’t like her much, but because Martha is so nice and funny she soon starts liking her. Martha gives her a skipping rope, so Mary can play in the many gardens of Misslethwaite Manor. In the gardens she meets Ben Weatherstaff, an old gardener, and his robin. The robin becomes Mary’s first friend. He shows her the key to the secret garden and also the door hidden under thick ivy. As soon as she enters the garden, it becomes her own little mystic world. One day she hears cries and looks for the person (It isn’t the first time she has heard it, but every time she wanted to look somebody stopped her and gave her some explanation). In a room behind a tapestry she finds a boy, Colin Craven, her cousin. He can’t walk nor stand up, and everybody thinks that he’s going to die. His father has never wanted to see him because he’s so different from his dead mother. With Dickon, Martha’s brother, and Mary he goes into the secret garden in a kind of a wheel chair, and learns to walk. They all say it’s “Magic” that made all these wonders possible: Colin’s walking, Mary’s change into a nice girl and her joy in the secret garden.

Because if all plants, flowers and birds walking togetherthere'll be a crowd dancing to the music

You're selfish!What are you?- Selfish always say that. Everybody are selfish if they don't want to do, what you say
