Synopsis

When little Sara Crewe is brought from India to London to join Miss Minchin's school, she arrives a princess - cloaked in velvet and feathers, surrounded by extravagant affection. Then disaster strikes; her father dies and his business fails, and Sara is cast into poverty. Now a beggar, and used by the school for back-breaking work, she must depend on her imagination, and the kindness of strangers, to lift her above the misery of her circumstances.

A dramatic reversal of the traditional 'rags to riches' formula, A Little Princess, by the author of The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett, is a truly magical story about the power of optimism in the face of adversity, which continues to enchant readers of all ages.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of A Little Princess features illustrations by Reginald Birch and an afterword by publisher Anna South.
