Original Secret Garden review

Here’s a link to a PDF of the NYT’s original review of The Secret Garden in 1911.

 Amazingly they got it right — and recommended it to adults as well. (Although the review was so loaded with spoilers that it surely drained much of the pleasure for any adult who had read the review.)

I would type in the glowing first sentence, but frankly it’s longer than the ding damg booK!
