Summary

Sara Crewe is a bright and charming student at Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies. When her adoring father dies on the eve of her eighth birthday, Sara is devastated. Penniless, Sara is banished to the attic and forced to work as a serving girl at the school in which she was once a beloved student. With help from her schoolmates and new friend Becky, Sara shows everyone that resourcefulness and a kind heart can help to determine one’s fortune.

A Little Princess is one of the best-loved stories in children’s literature, standing out among other sentimental fiction of the time. Like Burnett’s other works—The Secret Garden and Little Lord Fauntleroy in particular—A Little Princess creates a world where the inherent goodness of children solves adult problems. A Little Princess has been adapted for the stage, film and television, and the popular 1994 film adaptation was nominated for two Academy Awards.
