A Little Princess
Part of the Aladdin Classics series
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.
Her own fierce determination to maintain her dignity and remain a princess inside has intrigued and delighted readers for almost a hundred years, even inspiring a recent popular feature film.
