Review

"What little girl would not be delighted to discover that a beloved adult believes she shares Sara Crewe's wonderful imagination, wit, and courage when she receives a tape of The Little Princess?" -- Book Links, November 1997

Enjoy a complete, unabridged classic spiced by the voice of film actress Wanda McCaddon as it narrates the classic story of young rich girl Sara Crewe, who finds herself impoverished and at the mercy of a cruel headmistress when her father dies. Enjoy a strong audio version which recreates the drama of the story. --Midwest Book Review

About the Author

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.

I read and loved this book as a child, but my old copy was too worn for my kids to read, so I bought another one.
Techie Mom
It's a classic and it's still perfect to have it read to you as an adult!

A Little Princess is a classic story of a rich little girl who is put under the care of a bitter, selfish schoolhouse matron. At first, the girl is treated as a star pupil; but when her father dies a ruined man, she is cruelly forced to become a servant of the schoolhouse--but her sweet, vibrant nature keeps her alive during these hard times. I have seen quite a few movie adaptations, but the book is much better than the movies. This is a good book for people of all ages to read.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
I read the e-book version of A Little Princess, and it was excellent! The main character, Sara, was pampered by her rich father who she adored. She was then enrolled in a boarding school in London. Everyone there treated her like a princess until they find out that her father died and did not leave a penny for his daughter. Sara was then forced to work as a maid in the boarding school. It broke my heart to see this little girl suddenly have to do maid work while dealing with the death of her father. However, things worked out for her in the end and she made new friends at the boarding school. Sara has a very unique personality, unlike any character I have ever read about. This book is very touching, and once you read it, it will be hard to forget it.

Format: Paperback
A Little Princess Charles Scribner's Sons, 1905
Frances Hodgson Burnett ISBN-10: 1453857621
Sara Crewe was a peculiar thing: young, wealthy, and smart. But when she was left at a private girl's school she finds herself alone with very few friends she hides in books and brilliance. When her father tragically dies and she is left with no money no name and no love. Out of the kindness in Miss Minchin's heart she is used as a servant in the school and is constantly abused, teased, and starved. But a girl with mind such as hers will not go uneducated like her new best friend, Becky; she still kept herself in line. Reading through the night and working through the day you see Sara become the person we all strive to be.
This book comes alive when you read it. The characters are vivid, insisting, and real making you love them and by the end need them. I really enjoyed this book it was brilliantly written and oddly relatable. Once you read it you will forever remember the story the love and the life in this story. It highlights a child's dreams and imagination while at the same time sparks your own. Brilliant story, Brilliant characters, Brilliant Message, Brilliant Book.

I read and loved this book as a child, but my old copy was too worn for my kids to read, so I bought another one. And of course I re-read it, and fell in love all over again.

I am so glad that between every few new fiction books I revisit an classic. This one was a great friend from my childhood and what a delight to see Sara again!

The story is about a young girl named Sara, who is the apple of her father's eye. He is stationed in India and when she comes of age, he wants to have her educated and 'finished'. He sends her to a boarding school in England and subsequently dies, leaving her an orphan. She is reduced to a servant in the same boarding house but she still keeps her hopeful outlook towards her fellow creatures. Little does she know her father's best friend is looking for her, ready to bestow wealth and a home on her--if only he could find her. In a true Victorian twist of fate, Sara is eventually rescued and finds a home with a loving benefactor.
Sara is an odd, eccentric girl who is as optimistic as Pollyanna (another BFF from my childhood) but Sara does have a bit of a temper as well.

This book was a delight and pleasure and it is easy to see why it is a classic for any age.
