A Little Princess


Throughout her long and successful career, Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) had a reputation for delighting readers with stories about people whose desperate situations always seemed to improve by the last chapter. This charming piece of fiction, first published nearly a century ago - and more recently the basis of an acclaimed motion picture - follows that pattern. Its young heroine, Sara Crewe, falls upon hard times at an English boarding school when her father suddenly dies. Left penniless and at the mercy of a vindictive headmistress, Sara manages - despite a multitude of adversities - to maintain her optimistic outlook and usual goodness, qualities that do not go unnoticed by a mysterious benefactor who eventually transforms her life. Set in large, easy-to-read type and newly illustrated by artist Thea Kliros, `A Little Princess` will captivate romantics of all ages as it tells the riches-to-rags-to-riches tale of a winsome young miss.
