Tom's Midnight Garden (boy steps back in time to magical place 2 tapes)

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

( full title is " Tom's Midnight Garden ", by Philippa Pearce , a BBC Radio Four, Mid-Nineties dramatization )

"Thirteen? That crazy. A clock can't strike thirteen, there's no such thing. Well, what are you going to do?"

Sent away for the holiday to Uncle Alan and Aunt Gwen's house when his brother catches measles, Tom is fed up : What a boring summer it's going to be!

Restless, he lies in bed, unable to sleep. Then suddenly, the old grandfather clock in the hall strikes thirteen - Thirteen o'clock? What can it mean? Slowly, Tom creeps downstairs and throws open the back door ... To find a beautiful, magical garden, right on his very doorstep and a new playmate, in the shape of the little orphan girl Hatty.

As he steps across the threshold, Tom enters into the enchanted adventure of a lifetime ...

This modern classic takes the listener to the heart of another age, in a unique exploration of time and its influence on all of our lives.
