A Little Princess
This retelling of the well-known classic is both charming and accessible to younger readers. "I do sometimes pretend I am a princess, so that I can try and behave like a proper one." When wealthy Sara Crewe first arrives at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, she is treated like a princess. But when Sara descends into poverty and is forced to work as a lowly servant, she needs all her courage and imagination to remain a princess at heart. This Young Classics edition explores the real world behind A Little Princess. Photography sets the scene without intruding on the story, and brings A Little Princess to life for a new generation of children.
