In this picture book adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's A LITTLE
PRINCESS, Sara Crewe and ninteenth-century London come brilliantly alive
under the expert hand of award-winning author and illustrator Barbara
When kindhearted Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school, she seems just like a real little princess. Then a sudden misfortune turns her life upside down, and Sara is banished to the school's dreary attic and must work for her living. It takes all of Sara's imagination and a bit of magic to turn her misfortunes around and prove she is, at heart, a little princess.
( Ages 4-8 )
