9780099573722: A Little Princess (Vintage Children's Classics)

‘I pretend I am a princess, so that I can try and behave like one’

Without her beloved father and miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. Luckily Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things and her power of telling stories wins her lots of friends. When a letter arrives that brings disastrous news, the wicked headmistress Miss Minchin forces Sara to become a servant. Her lovely clothes and toys are taken away from her. She must work from dawn until midnight. How will Sara cope with her new found poverty? Can her imagination help her overcome this horrible situation?

BACKSTORY: Read why Jacqueline Wilson loves this book and find out which pupil of Sara's school you are most like.

Review:

"I'm not sure I could have survived childhood without Frances Hodgson Burnett. My sister and I would crawl into the attic of our suburban American house and pretend we were looking across London rooftops. We'd lost our parents and our money, but perhaps a mysterious monk would visit our miserable garret." (Meg Rosoff)

"Sara Crewe is a Cinderella figure... She is intelligent and good humoured with an infectious warmth that embraces the lowliest of her new acquaintances. The sunshine continues when impoverishment and drudgery befall her and she relies on her private fantasies to preserve her natural zest for life." ( Guardian)

"Generations of children have fallen in love with the story of Sara Crewe, the little girl who imagines she's a princess in order to survive the hard times" ( Daily Mail)

"I read A Little Princess as a child, and from that there lingers still a whiff of the irretrievable quality of childhood reading. I was mesmerised by the account of Sara Crewe's lavish clothes; silks and satins and velvets" (Penelope Lively Independent)

"Instead of a rags to riches story, this is a riches to rags story...a good, girly read" (Jacqueline Wilson Independent)

Book Description:

When Sara Crewe is orphaned she is stripped of her lovely things and forced to work as a servant at the boarding school she once attended. A classic tale of courage and imagination.
