A young girl named Mary finds the key to a walled, forgotten garden in this slipcased accordion book for readers 7 to 10, a beautifully illustrated 14-panel rendition of Frances Hodgson Burnett's beloved story of rebirth. Becca Stadtlander's watercolor illustrations grow bright with floral colors as Mary brings the garden back to life. The book illuminates key scenes, describes the action of the story, and provides memorable quotes from the original text. Unfolding to 37½ inches long, it can also be an attractive shelf display, and includes character portraits and additional brief tellings ("In 30 Seconds" and "In Five Words").
