A collection of six timeless, classic stories: The Story of Heidi, Little Women, The Railway Children, Black Beauty, The Secret Garden and The Wizard of Oz.
When little Sara Crewe is brought from India to London to join Miss Minchin's school, she arrives a princess - cloaked in velvet and feathers, surrounded by extravagant affection. Then disaster strikes; her father dies and his business fails, and Sara is cast into poverty. Now a beggar, and used by the school for back-breaking work, she must depend on her imagination, and the kindness of strangers, to lift her above the misery of her circumstances. A dramatic reversal of the traditional 'rags to riches' formula, A Little Princess, by the author of The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett, is a truly magical story about the power of optimism in the face of adversity, which continues to enchant readers of all ages. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of A Little Princess features illustrations by Reginald Birch and an afterword by publisher Anna South. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

When Mary Lennox is sent home an orphan from India to live with her hunchbacked uncle at Misselthwaite Manor, she can have little idea of the new life that awaits her there. She arrives a sour-faced, sickly little madam with a furious temper, but through her friendship with local Yorkshire lad, Dickon, and their discovery of a secret garden, soon becomes a happy and healthy girl. She shares her new-found love of life with her poorly cousin, Colin, and together the three children restore the garden to its former glory. Between them they work their magic on the garden, and in turn the garden works its magic on the children and everyone around them. Enchanting and illuminating, "The Secret Garden" is a richly imaginative story about the potential for transformation.
