Publisher's Summary

When his brother catches measles, Tom is sent away for the summer to stay with his uncle and aunt and is thoroughly fed up about it. What a boring summer it's going to be. But then, lying in bed one night, he hears the old grandfather clock in the hall strike the very strange hour of 13 o'clock. What can it mean? As Tom creeps downstairs and opens the door, he finds out...a magical garden, a new playmate, and the adventure of a lifetime. Una Stubbs stars as Aunt Gwen in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

    "Tom's Midnight Garden"

    Having been a huge fan of Phlippa Pearce as a child I was keen to listen to this with my 8 year old son. We both loved it. The dramatisation is very well done and the story is easy to follow. It was a real joy to see my son fascinated by the events unfolding in the garden, and trying to work out what was happening, how and why...

    Story
    "Beautiful story, well read"
    Where does Tom's Midnight Garden (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An enjoyable children's tale I remember well from my childhood.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tom's Midnight Garden (Dramatised)?

    I was filled with excitement as they skated down the river.


    What does Dramatisation bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The dramatization really brought the book to life and immersed me into Tom's world.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No spoilers here - the ending is very lovely.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a relatively short book that I loved listening to over the course of an evening. Worth a listen if you read this as a child and a wonderful story to introduce to your own children.

    "An accurate performance"
    What did you like most about Tom's Midnight Garden (Dramatised)?

    This book is one of my all time favourites and I was very disappointed that Audible was not able to offer it as an unabridged reading. This performance, however, is lovely. It captures the essence of the book and, in one sitting, transported me back to the magic of the garden that captured my imagination when I first read it as a child.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tom of course. His love of the garden so closely reflects the beauty seen within a Victorian garden.


    What about Dramatisation’s performance did you like?

    It followed the book so accurately


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I always have an emotional reaction to this book. Without giving anything away the story is so brilliantly written.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that every child should read and if you didn't read it as a child then it is just as enjoyable as an adult.

    "Awful sound quality"

    I'm studying this book as part of a children's literature course, and enjoyed the story. The sound quality was terrible though, and I'm not sure I'd have had the patience to persevere with it unless I needed to. Very expensive for such bad quality.
