The Wonderful Garden  (1911) 
by E. Nesbit
Illustrated by H. R. Millar. A story quite different from her usual "magic" books. When the three C's cast magical spells from a book on garden lore they find, is the result really magic—or just a series of coincidences? Even the Three C.'s and their friend Rupert stand opposed on this point.

Another edition—stitched together from the instalments in The Strand Magazine where the story was first serialised, is available at [mobileread]. With many more of Millar's illustrations. Also, an audiobook is available at [Librivox]
