Written by British-born author Frances Hodgson Burnett and first published in 1905, A Little Princess tells the story of young Sara Crewe, privileged daughter of a wealthy diamond merchant. 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. Suddenly she is treated no better than a scullery maid.
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
Charming girl Sarah Crewe
The story! I admire Sarah Crewe's imagination and maturity.
When Sarah found out about her father's untimely death during her birthday, Sarah's first feast in the attic, and when Sarah went over to the neighbour to return the monkey.
Becky! I love her accent.
There's already a film for this book. I couldn't ask for more.
