Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to make friends at boarding school and settle in.

But when she learns that she'll never see her beloved father again, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury for drudgery and a room in the attic. Will she find that kindness and generosity are all the riches she truly needs?

With a deeply poignant introduction written by the bestselling author of Chinese Cinderella, Adeline Yen Mah, A Little Princess is one of the twelve wonderful classic stories being relaunched in Puffin Classics to celebrate Puffin's dedication to publishing the most innovative and imaginative children's literature for generations.

Synopsis:

When you think classics, think Puffin!

"Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them."

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They're waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables--but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it's impossible to imagine life without her.

Synopsis:

Puffin Classics: the stories you love, the name you trust.

The handsome horse Black Beauty begins his life in a happy home, until a change of circumstances leads him to learn about a crueler side of life. Black Beauty is the ultimate classic novel for horse fans of all ages. Our Puffin Classics edition features an introduction by award-winning author Meg Rosoff.

About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) grew up in England, but she began writing what was to become The Secret Garden in 1909, when she was creating a garden for a new home in Long Island, New York. Burnett was already established as a novelist for adults when she turned to writing for children. Little Lord Fauntleroy, written for her two young boys; the play A Little Princess, which became the basis for the novel of the same name; and The Secret Garden are the works for which she is most warmly remembered.

Adeline Yen Mah is the author of the bestselling Chinese Cinderella.
