While their parents are away in India, Caroline, Charlotte and Charles are left with their great uncle Charles. Looking for entertainment, they come across an old book entitled “The Language of Flowers”, which seems to contain a variety of magical spells. The trio waste no time in trying to perform these invocations, which may or may not have been the cause of the decidedly queer things that happen next. Edith Nesbit’s 1911 “The Wonderful Garden” is a fantastic example of children’s literature that would make for perfect bedtime reading and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of her seminal literature. Contents include: “The Beginning”, “The Manor House”, “The Wonderful Garden”, “In Thessalonians”, “The Midnight Adventure”, “Hunted”, “Being Detectives”, “The Heroine”, “The Morning After”, “Brewing the Spell”, “The Rosicrucians”, “The Other Books”, “The Rosy Cure”, “The Mineral Woman”, “Justice”, “The Appeal to Caesar”, “The Le-O-Pard”, “The Leopard’s-Bane”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
