Review:

Shirley Hughes is best known for her stories for younger children. However, in Enchantment in the Garden she shows her talent for creating longer, deeper stories for older children to enjoy. This is the tale of a lonely young girl's magical friendship with the marble statue of a boy which comes to life, and whose friendship has a lasting impact upon her.

Accompanied by atmospheric and sweeping illustrations of summer landscapes and superb Italianate views, this is an unforgettable tale of a childhood romance which captures the hearts and minds of adults and children alike. --Philippa Reece

Review:

"A storybook with echoes of Frances Hodgson Burnett. . ." --"Kirkus Reviews"
