When his brother catches measles, Tom is sent away for the summer to stay with his uncle and aunt and is thoroughly fed up about it. What a boring summer it's going to be. But then, lying in bed one night, he hears the old grandfather clock in the hall strike the very strange hour of 13 o'clock. What can it mean? As Tom creeps downstairs and opens the door, he finds out...a magical garden, a new playmate, and the adventure of a lifetime.

    " The final scene had me fighting back tears, on the tube no less! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacky | 2/11/2014

    " A real classic, I enjoyed reading some years ago, not as a child, and I loved the whole idea of being able to move back in time. Captured my imagination. I've got some of my class reading it now for their Literature Circle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 2/7/2014

    " This is one of those charming, magical stories that immediately plant themselves in your heart and you read over and over no matter how old you are. I like this book quite a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianne | 2/6/2014

    " I really should read this book again, as I only remember bits and pieces of it from when I was younger. It is a wonderful fantasy tale of a young boy who discovers a magical world while staying with his relatives one summer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/31/2014

    " I love books where all is explained in the end and it ends happily. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wulfette Noire | 1/31/2014

    " I read Tom's Midnight Garden when I was a kid and the story still is one of my favorite. It is beautifully written and despite the magical time-travel, there is a certain reality bites aspect to it that still haunts me until now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/22/2014

    " One of my childhood favorites, and a great classic. There's lots of magic here. Though I must admit it's not so favorite as Goneaway Lake, which it in some way resembles, but that is because you don't have to leave Goneaway. I think I prefer my favorite stories to end in the middle, so I never have to leave. "

    " Sadly underwhelmed as blasphemous as that may be to fans. It felt rather slow moving to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tshana | 12/8/2013

    " I liked this ghost story because Tom got to step back into a past time and actually witness fragments of the society. I suppose I would like to do that as well but them I may be too terrified if the opportunity did present itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 11/29/2013
