She meets Dickon a cheery common boy and Colin her sickly cousin who doesn't believe he'll live. But before she meets these new friends she uncovers a secret garden which hadn't been opened for ten years. With magic along the way the children make the garden come alive, The Secret Garden.
Two of the characters were Dickon and Colin. They are really different. Colin is a sickly child while Dickon is a healthy boy. But they are both boys who live on the moor. Colin is hated and detested by everyone. Dickon is loved which is why he's so healthy.Resentful Colin hates everyone who hates him.Dickon is kind and loving who is very happy.Both boys are very curious about many things but a lot of which is different but is the same. Colin HATES outside and thinks it is a horrible thing. Dickon practically lives outside and loves nature and animals. The boys are both friends with Mary who makes an influence on both of their lives.I like Dickon better because he is so much more cheerful. I would like to be around him more so then I could be happy and he would have a good influence on me. He is also a lot like me with loving nature and animals. I definitely like Dickon better. These boys were really fun to read about.
I would definitely recommend this book. I would recommend it to kids in high reading 5th grade into average reading 7th graders. It would probably be a more pleasing book to read for a girl. It is a classic so if you don't like old fashioned books don't read it. It is a little un-comrehensive at some parts. If you like "magic" you might like this book too. It was a it was really good and I got into it a lot. I hope you do to!...more

One day a strange goblin creature comes to her school and tricking other students.

But they find out that someone is an impostor out to find a secret magical object at Fablehaven. Who can they trust?
The most important thing I learned was to be careful who you trust. In the book they are unsure who to trust and find some impostors who were supposedly their friends. it is important to be sure who to trust or you could end up getting hurt. Being careful who to trust is very important.
I would recommend this book to 5th through 8th graders who enjoy fantasy. This series is a lot like Harry Potter so I would recommend this series to Harry Potter fans too. Other ages could also read it too but this is what I recommend. You may also be able to read this book to younger children. I recommend this book to these age groups because of some creepy parts and younger children may get dis-interested. Overall I would definitely recommend this book. ...more
