Philippa Pearce is the author of many books, several of which are considered classics both in the United States and in her native England. Her award-winning titles include Tom's Midnight Garden, which received the Carnegie Medal and was an ALA Notable Book; The Battle of Bubble and Squeak, which received the Whitbread Award; and Mrs. Cockle's Cat, which received the Kate Greenaway Medal. I'm reading this as an adult, so I might be expecting too much. It's not as charming as I thought, and it didn't meet my expectations about being set in the pleantries of a garden, but it seems like a perfectly good children's book. It might also make the kid think.

Toms midnight garden, . Tom's Midnight Garden, . Town gardens are small, as a rule, and the Longs’ garden was no exception to the rule; there was a vegetable plot and a grass plot and one flower-bed and a rough patch by the back fence. In this last the apple-tree grew: it was large, but bore very little fruit, and accordingly the two boys had always been allowed to climb freely over it. Tom never really convinced them of the simple truth: that a boy would naturally go into the larder, even if he were not hungry. Anyway, they pointed out, he was out of bed far too late. He was hustled back again, and his uncle stood over him to make a speech.

Tom’s Midnight Garden" is a classic children’s book about time travel, loneliness, and friendship. The appealing and popular story was written by Philippa Pearce. She wrote over thirty books, but her second one about Tom and his experiences is her most famous. It's considered to be a classic book for children aged eight and above. I’ve always believed that a children’s book should also be enjoyable for adults. In fact, I didn’t discover Tom’s Midnight Garden until I was an adult. I was an avid reader as a child (and still am).

Tom prowls through his relative's home at night, discovers a Victorian garden where non exists in the day, and there .

Beautiful cover art. This title is a classic! A must
Have for adults and children alike.
I rate this book five stars for content.
Please note, this edition does not have the
Original black and white illustrations. I was very disappointed by that. But, it’s still a gem!

Fun YA time travel story. Charming but seems dated. I enjoyed it and had planned to pass it on to my 11 year old granddaughter but I just don’t think it will hold her interest...a tad too old-fashioned.

More dated than I remember from when I read it as a kid. I got it for my kids (9 and 10), read it first before handing it on, and realized there's a lot they won't be able to relate to at this point. Nevertheless, it's fun.

Best children's book ever. It's absolutely a must read. It never gets old., having our own copy now makes it convenient to read it any time. Shipping was fast, the book was brand new.

There are certain books the reviews for which always start along the lines of, "I remember reading this book as a child ..."). Often, those books are well-written, mellow, old-fashioned, almost dreamy, mood pieces. There is rarely any discussion of who might want to read the book now. That's more or less what we have here.
This book is certainly a classic. The writing is restrained and the development of the writer's themes is subtle. It is a wonderful example of the best in English children's writing, and quite worthy of all those fond memory reviews. But, do you want this book now for your modern child's library now? I think the answer is yes, not because the book is essential reading, but because you should have it on the chance that you're young reader will respond to it. Would I encourage every kid to read this? No. Would I invite some kids to try it? Yes. Would I want it on the shelf to be discovered. Absolutely.

A few years ago I decided, as a senior citizen, to take a nostalgic trip back to childhood and read some books in the children's section of my local library. My first choice was Tom's Midnight Garden. This enchanting novel, with a post-WWII background, should be included in contemporary elementary school required readings. It's a wonderful read. Great Illustrated Classics the Last of the Mohigans
When I was younger, I watched a movie created by BBC titled "Tom's Midnight Garden". The movie was wonderful and mystical and years later, I found the book and decided to buy it. I was NOT disappointed. This book is incredibly amazing for a children's book, and deals with the fact that dimensions and time can overlap. I would definitely recommend that you read this to your children, or even to yourself. Definitely read this one!
