Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 5-7. Not just abridged but retold, this colorfully illustrated, large-format book has a text that's longer than most picture books but considerably shorter than Burnett's beloved novel. McClintock's sensitive illustrations, apparently ink drawings with watercolor washes, will certainly appeal to readers and book buyers of all ages. The period settings and costumes have a charm all their own, and the detailed pictures clearly portray Sara's transformation from privileged child to pauper and back again. Some scenes and dialogue here did not appear in the original book, but they serve to move the plot along more swiftly. The story loses a great deal of subtlety in theme and character development (as well as plot and setting) in its adaptation to picture-book format. Those who love the original will advise children to wait until they're old enough to read it. But children or parents who want a picture-book version will find this a very pretty one. Carolyn Phelan

Frances Hodgson Burnett was a born storyteller. Even as a young child, her greatest pleasure was in making up stories and acting them out, using her dolls as characters. She wrote over forty books, including the classic A Little Princess, also illustrated by Tasha Tudor.



Barbara McClintock has written and illustrated many acclaimed books for young readers, including Adèle & Simon, an ALA Notable Book, a Children's Book Sense Pick, and a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, and Dahlia, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book. She lives in Windham, Connecticut.

Shipping was fast. Book was beautiful. My only comment is I would have liked to have seen verbage stating what age group this particular version of the book was geared toward. I was purchasing this book for the school library and couldn't tell what grades it was appropriate for. For a school of 3 - 5th graders, I feel this version is a little young. Other than the lack of verbage in the description I was very pleased with all other aspects of this transaction.

Format: Hardcover
Any young lady with an imagination of her own will find the story of Sara Crewe delightful and enchanting. The rags to riches plot may not be original in and of itself, but the way Sara transforms her dirty quarters into something beautiful, all within her mind, feels almost magical. Her sweet care for Becky despite her own grief and pain is also a picture of selflessness and courage. She refuses to let her sad circumstances steal the joy she has always found in small things, proving that she can be the same sweet girl she was when she had everything money could buy. It's her heart, not her possessions that make her a little princes. The happily ever after ending makes Sara's story feel even more like a fairy tale.

I was very disappointed as I thought it was the complete edition of The Little Princess. I am trying to return it, but have yet to hear from seller if that was possible. The book was in good condition. It just was not what I thought I was ordering, and the return is difficult to accomplish.
