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)

Presented in a handsome compact edition with a multicolor stamped cover and printed endpapers, this 1905 novel for readers 8 to 12 by France Hodgson Burnett joins The Secret Garden as one of the most popular and widely read children's novels of all time. Young Sara Crewe, born in India, is brought by her father to Miss Minchin's boarding school in London. Generous and kind, Sara is horribly mistreated after her father's death leaves her penniless, until a mysterious benefactor begins to turn her fortunes around.
