A Little Princess


A Little Princess


A Little Princess is the classic tale of courage against adversity.

Sara Crewe, an exceptionally loving and intelligent young student at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her adored father dies suddenly.

Penniless and banished to a room in the attic, Sara is soon starved, humiliated, and forced to work as a servant.

How this resourceful girl's fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of children's literature.

A Little Princess is quite simply, along with Peter Pan and The Secret Garden, one of the greatest children’s stories of all time.
