When bratty orphan Mary Lennox is sent to live with her uncle at Misselthwaite Manor, she has no idea what MONSTROUS adventures lie in store for her! The Evil Sorcerer Zorlan Morlan is up to his old tricks again- this time entering Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel "The Secret Garden" and turning its heroine- Mary Lennox- into A MONSTER! Only 12-year-old Benjy Bleeglehorn, and her dashing sidekick Bravo, have the power to turn Monster Mary Lennox back into a little girl- by helping her make The Secret Garden come to life!
