Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her adored, indulgent father dies. Now penniless and banished to a room in the attic, Sara is demeaned, abused, and forced to work as a servant. How this resourceful girl's fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of children's literature.

This unique and fully annotated edition appends excerpts from Frances Hodgson Burnett's original 1888 novella Sara Crewe and the stage play that preceded the novel, as well as an early story, "Behind the White Brick," allowing readers to see how A Little Princess evolved. In his delightful introduction, U. C. Knoepflmacher considers the fairy-tale allusions and literary touchstones that place the book among the major works of Victorian literature, and shows it to be an exceptionally rich and resonant novel.

Synopsis:

Sara Crewe is an exceptional student at a Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies. When her adored and indulgent father dies, she is banished to a room in the attic and forced to work as a servant.

About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) spent her childhood in England but throughout her adult life maintained homes in both England and America. Though she wrote for adults, she is best remembered for her children's books, including Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden.
