LitJoy is pleased to offer book 4 in the Whimsy Collection. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a story beloved by children and adults since its original publication in 1905. We hope you enjoy the endearing tale of Sara Crewe and all the lovely touches LitJoy has added to make this edition unique.
A Little Princess is one of the most treasured of Frances Hodgson Burnett's books. It's the story of a young girl named Sara who is enrolled by her father, Captain Richard Crewe, a wealthy English widower, at Miss Minchin's Boarding School for Girls in London. Because of her father's wealth Sara enjoys a life of luxury and convenience which abruptly comes to an end when she learns that her father has passed away following an unfortunate turn of events that leaves him penniless. The Headmistress, Miss Minchin, who secretly despises the wealthy Sara, becomes infuriated over a large unpaid bill left by her father's passing and consequently strips Sara of almost all her belongings and forces her to live in a cold and poorly furnished attic, making her earn her keep by working as a servant girl. Sara rises above those hard times, and imagines herself to be a little princess, encouraging the other young girls at the school as she awaits her rescue from a mysterious benefactor.
