All the other girls at Miss Minchin's school treat Sara as if she truly were a princess. But when Captain Crewe's fortune is sadly lost, Sara's luck changes.

Sara's fierce determination to maintain her dignity and remain a princess inside has intrigued and delighted listeners for almost 100 years, even inspiring a recent popular feature film.

my favourite childhood book

I have read and memorised this book from childhood. Love it! the narration was clear and crisp but perhaps lacking a little tone variety. the narrator tried to do different voices and inflections but it still sounded just a tad monotonous. That said, it is still one of the better narrations available and was enjoyable all the same.
