A Little Princess
A Little Princess is a children's novel first published as a book in 1905. It is an expanded version of the short story "Sara Crewe: or, What Happened at Miss Minchin's". Captain Crewe, a wealthy English widower, has been raising his only child, Sara, in India where he is stationed with the British Army. The captain enrolls his young daughter at Miss Minchin's boarding school for girls in London, and he orders and pays the headmistress for special treatment and exceptional luxuries for Sara, such as a private room, a personal maid and a separate sitting room.
When wealthy Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school in London, she is determined to settle in and make friends. Charismatic and popular, with a big heart and a love of storytelling, she seems to be succeeding. That is until tragedy strikes, and Sara must fight harder than she thought possible to remain both strong and kind in the most difficult of circumstances.
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1949-1924) was an English-American novelist and playwright best known for her three children's novels, Little Lord Fauntleroy (1885), A Little Princess (1905) and The Secret Garden (1911).
