Forced to stay with his childless aunt and uncle for the summer holidays, Tom is lonely and cross. There isn't even a garden to play in. But when he creeps down at midnight and opens a certain door, there is the garden he longs for. There too is Hatty, the adventurous, lonely orphan who, like the garden itself, is touched by mystery. Why is one day summer, another sparkling winter?

Will Tom ever meet Hatty in daytime life? And can Tom find the answers to these questions before he must go home? Read by Jan Francis

    " This book gave me the same feel as Tuck Everlasting. It's a good story and interesting but when you're finished you're left feeling sad. I really did enjoy it but I am not cut out for time travel YA/children's book, lol. Too sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley Webster | 12/18/2013

    " fantastic wonderful book... every one should read this!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/2/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greta | 12/2/2013

    " I enjoyed how this book morphed while I was reading it. At first I thought it was going to be another "Secret Garden". Then I thought it was turning into a sort of ghost story. By the end it proved to be something totally different. There's a bit of mystery, a bit of fantasy, a lovely Victorian element and a unique relationship that unfolds in both worlds of fantasy and reality between the main characters Tom and Hattie. This book was delightful and charming and deserved to win the prize and the designation as a Modern Classic. "

    " I ll poke you in the eye if you tell me theres a better kids book...controversial? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mckinley | 11/28/2013

    " Good bedtime book to read aloud. Boy and girl main characters. Streampunkish since just at the edge of Victorian era - at least the night part - mated with time travel lite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 11/9/2013

    " I'm also a sucker for time travel and this is one of the best children's time travel books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peachy | 11/7/2013

    " I heard a lot of good things about this book, but found it rather so-so. I'm definitely keeping it around for my youngest though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 11/2/2013

    " Tom's foibles make him less likable at times, but the book is better for it. Good writing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amman | 10/28/2013

    " Actually, I studied it for school; I guess it's pretty nice. Got a bit of magic in it, and is, all in all, a pretty decent book. I read it before school actually began; wanted to judge it myself, because once school starts they'll make it as boring as can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AnnaLund | 10/19/2013

    " This book was my first encounter with time travel. It is still one of my favorite books of all time. I wish I could write like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 6/9/2013

    " Okay, kids book, but it was fantastic! I read it in my Children as Readers class and loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 3/27/2013

    " A very poignant book - one of those I return to every now & again..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/19/2012

    " I've read this several times over the years of my teaching career and each time I loved it - and so did the children! A wonderful magical story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosie | 10/16/2012

    " I really wish this app had half a star, I really rate this 3.5 stars, truly a wonderful book, filled with wonder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine Johnson | 10/7/2012

    " I loved this charming story. It is in the children's book section of the Folio Society books that I am always tempted by. It has an almost spiritual feeling in some parts of it. It reminded me a bit of George MacDonald's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary-Beth | 9/26/2012

    " Tom has to stay with his aunt and uncle while his brother has the measles. When the clock in their flat strikes 13 he discovers a garden and a young girl who needs a friend. The novel is a kind of puzzle and it's an engaging one too. It's a lovely story and a fast read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 9/21/2012

    " 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. "
