    There are currently four books in this little Classics Unfolded series. I own all four but have only previously read Pride and Prejudice. Whilst i enjoy the minimalism of the story and the fact that genuine quotes from the books are used here, unlike in the Classics Unfolded Pride and Prejudice I wasn't captivated as much by the illustrations or indeed the story.

I own all four but have only previously read Pride and Prejudice. Whilst i enjoy the minimalism of the story and the fact that genuine quotes from the books are used here, unlike in the Classics Unfolded Pride and Prejudice I wasn't captivated as much by the illustrations or indeed the story. I have read The Secret Garden and can attest to it's magic, but this little book didn't seem to have even half as much magic as the full-length story. Whilst that is to be expected, what I wasn't expecting was for the illustrations to be a little lacklustre, as well. I was expecting the garden to be a little more magnificent-as one feels when reading the story-and for the house to be a little more austere and gothicesque: even a little creepy. But no, it was pretty standard and never quite took my imagination anywhere. It is an enjoyable little book to remember the story by, and that is primarily how I use it: I also use it to see illustrators take their inspiration from books and how they adapt it to fit their own style and imagination. Sadly, The Secret Garden isn't quite as well protrayed here as it could be.

    I really love the illustrations. Eventhough the plot was made simpler but I don't mind. It is my favourite thing this year. I might seem too obssesed with The Secret Garden.

    The illustrations are gorgeous, and quite makes up for the abrupt style of the retelling.

    These are a great way to introduce new readers to the classics, and for old readers to re-live their favorite quotes and scenes in a beautiful new format.

    Es una edición muy bonita y las ilustraciones son preciosas, pero voy a ser esa persona pedante que no le pone las 5 estrellas por una tontería: los niños no se parecen a la descripción del libro. 😅 Y es que creo que en este caso los niños están descritos en bastante detalle en el libro o porque es importante que veamos que están mal de salud o porque tienen una cara rara y aquí parecen todos sanotes/bien parecidos y con distinto pelo/ojos/forma de la cara.

Ya sé que es una tontería, porque insisto, el libro es muy bonito, pero yo qué sé. XD Está muy resumido (obviamente, son literalmente 16 páginas con dos o tres frases cada una) con lo cual creo que leyéndolo sin haber leído el libro la historia pierde bastante. Esto se aplica a todos los libros de la colección, claro, solo lo menciono para que nadie se piense que va a encontrar en una versión tan resumida a todos los personajes o todos los matices y tramas. Al final de cada libro hay un resumen en 30 segundos, un resumen en 5 palabras (en este caso: nature, childhood, secrets, friendship, awakening) y una invitación a leer el libro entero citando algo que no pudieron meter en el resumen. Ya lo dije al principio pero lo vuelvo a repetir: es una edición muy bonita. ¡Recomiendo la colección entera!

    Having the story literally "unfold" was such an interesting concept! It was definitely the most abridged version of The Secret Garden I've seen, but I appreciated its use of carefully selected quotes from the novel. The story is mostly told through the illustrations which are charming, and fans of Burnett's novel will find it enjoyable to glance through. It's a nice edition to a Secret Garden collection.

    Classics Unfolded: The Secret Garden, by Becca Stadtlander A skipping stone across the waters of the story to the other bank. Each of the few sentences act as a segment title of that portion of the tale. Delightful artwork, and fun concept. ***

    Estos Classics Unfolded son una belleza. Contienen los elementos escenciales de la historia, incluyendo una lista de personajes muy coqueta, así como las escenas principales y breves descripciones. Incluso la funda en la que se guarda el "libro" es muy bella. Estos Classics Unfolded son una belleza.

    I usually will not read a book more than once, The Secret Garden is one of the few exceptions I have made. It is not magical, but it seems to be so. I will re-read this book every few years when I am in need of comfort I first read this summer before I went into fifth grade an will still read it again now. I am currently trying to get my 12 year old bother to read it, but his interest in reading is very little. Alas.

    The illustrations and quotes are fantastic! I wish they’d left out the summary sentences. They detract from the experience.
