Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sara Crewe is a gifted and well-mannered child, and Captain Crewe, her father, is an extraordinarily wealthy man. So Miss Minchin, headmistress of Sara's new boarding school in London, is pleased to treat Sara as her star pupil—a pampered little princess.

But one dreadful day, Sara's father dies, and her world suddenly collapses around her. All of her lovely things are taken from her, and she is forbidden to associate with her friends. Miss Minchin can now show her greedy and mean-spirited nature to its fullest. The little princess is reduced to a shabby drudge.

But Sara does not break, and with the help of a monkey, an Indian lascar, and the strange, ailing gentleman next door, she not only survives her sufferings but helps those around her.

Synopsis:

In Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1905 classic tale, Sara Crewe, a pampered little rich girl who suddenly finds herself poor and fatherless, learns that deep down, being a real princess is an attitude of the heart.

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.
Rebecca Burns is editor-in-chief of Atlanta Magazine, which has won numerous regional and national awards under her direction.
