    And the Movie.

    Beautifully done, very insightful into the nature of humanity. To sum up what I got out of this story: We all have a 'secret garden' inside of us!

    Sooper Awesome <3

    This book was so amazing. I read it years ago and I still love it. I loved the idea of a "secret garden". I wanted one for myself after I read this! The movie was good as well. I hope my kids will read it someday and enjoy it as much as I did.
