Product Description

Review

 • "Sara Crewe is a Cinderella figure... She is intelligent and good humoured with an infectious warmth that embraces the lowliest of her new acquaintances. The sunshine continues when impoverishment and drudgery befall her and she relies on her private fantasies to preserve her natural zest for life." --Guardian

 • "Generations of children have fallen in love with the story of Sara Crewe, the little girl who imagines she's a princess in order to survive the hard times." --Daily Mail --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Sara Crewe is a gifted and well-mannered child, and Captain Crewe, her father, is an extraordinary wealthy man. So Miss Minchin, headmistress of Sara's new boarding school in London, is pleased to treat Sara as her star pupil--a pampered little princess.

But suddenly, one dreadful day, Sara's world collapses around her. All of her lovely things are taken from her and she is forbidden to associate with her friends. Her father has died penniless in India.

Miss Minchin can now show her greedy and meanspirited nature to its fullest. The little princess is reduced to a shabby drudge. But Sara does not break, and with the help of a monkey, an Indian lascar, and the strange, ailing gentleman next door, she not only survives her sufferings but help those around her. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born in Manchester, England, but moved to America as a teenager. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and was dramatized during Burnett's lifetime. The story lives on today in videos and movies. Though she began writing novels for adults, she gained lasting success writing for children. She is best known for Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Nancy Bond is the author of a number of books for young readers, including The Voyage Begun, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book; A Place to Come Back To, an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults and a Booklist Editor's Choice; and Truth to Tell. She wrote after attending library school in a Welsh town outside of Aberstwyth, the book's setting. She lives in Concord, Massachusetts.

From AudioFile

When young Sara Crewe's world is spun akimbo, she remains true, unlike many of the rich girls at Miss Minchin's Seminary. The power of Sara's kindness and imagination steady her as her status changes from prized pupil to household drudge. "Things happen to people by accident," Sara believes, and serendipity plays a big part in Burnett's timeless story. Lucy Whybrow's performance is polished and provides a discreet British flavor. From the opening moments, Sara's goodness radiates and is juxtaposed with the falseness of the headmistress and her sister. As the "accidents" unfold, Whybrow invites listeners to partake of the magic.
