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

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.

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.
