Description - Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce

Tom has to spend the summer at his aunt's, and it seems as if nothing good will ever happen again. Then he hears the grandfather clock strike thirteen - and everything changes. Outside the door is a garden - a garden that shouldn't exist. Are the children there ghosts, or is it Tom who is the ghost? This Carnegie-Medal-winning modern classic is magically timeless, and has never been out of print. For the 70th anniversary celebration of the Medal, a panel named it one of the top ten Medal-winning works, and the British public elected it the nation's second favourite.

Author Biography - Philippa Pearce

Philippa Pearce was born in 1920 and spent her childhood in Great Shelford, south of Cambridge, where her father was a flour-miller. The village and the river that ran by the mill played a large part in shaping her stories, especially Minnow on the Say and Tom's Midnight Garden. For most of her adult life she lived within a few yards of her childhood home. After she graduated from Cambridge in 1942, she worked as a children's book editor, and as a scriptwriter and producer for BBC Radio. She won a number of awards for her children's books, including the Carnegie Medal for Tom's Midnight Garden. In 1997 she was awarded an OBE for services to Children's Literature. She died in 2006, aged 86."
