I just finished reading a little princess, and it was a finaminal book. It is about a girl who looses her father (Captin Crewe) and has to go from being treated like a princess, to being treated like a scullery maid. I suggest it to all poeple who love to read and just eat up books as fast as they get them.

Not many books that I've read and reread, but this one is definitely one of them! One of the first books I read when I was growing up and for sure one of the more memorable ones. There are so many movie versions of the book as well, but you definitely can't go wrong with this one:

The book is simple, clean, and easy to read, but it's very easy to love the characters and the book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, young or old. A classic and one of my...more

In my opinion I thought this was an average book. The plot and characters were interesting. One of the reasons I didn't enjoy reading this book was because of the way the dialogues were written. The book wasn't written in modern English--which made it difficult for a reader to understand. This book reminded me of the process of reading Romeo and Juliet.
As I am reading this book I didn't feel it was right for others to treat Mary that way. They say she isn't as pretty as her mother, but they ne...more

This book is about a girl that is born stubborn and a garden that shows the true meaning of friendship. And soon the stubborn that is in her went away. Read this book to know more what a little secret garden could do to this girl and her future.

Recommended to Sandy by: those who like old fashoned fairy stories
I really liked the these two stories. I really enjoy fairy stories with lots of magical things happening in them. And these were a couple of old-timey classics. A nice book to read while sitting on my chaise lounge in my own secret garden....

When I was little, I had the double sided dvd for these books and I loved them so much, but when I found out they were books, I made it my mission ot read them both. Love the books, incredible amazing!!!
Tara
It was an okay read for me. I am not a huge fan of classics. I am glad that I read the book and enjoyed the fact that the kids were allowed to be kids. I liked the message of the book.
Teresa
Another good book read as a child.
I would give this book to any young reader.
The author is so descriptive, you can really find yourself in the garden.
Aimee
I think that the movies are much better than the books. Maybe because I watched or because that i saw the movies before I read the books.. I do not know...
Kami
I love this movie. The book is good, but deviated from the movie quite a bit. It threw me off. I didn't expect that. It's a great story though.
Rachel Elverd
My favourite childhood books and still readable as an adult. My children have also read so we are all talking about it. love, love, love.
Renee
My Mum read 'The Secret Garden' & 'A Little Princess' over and over again to me as a little girl, so it has a certain sentimental value...
Ging Gimper
I agree with the author that if you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.
So adorable... :)
