A Little Princess

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
By: (1849-1924)

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book "A Little Princess" begins as seven year old Sara Crewe is dropped off at a boarding school by her rich father. She has grown up in India and has lived a very pampered life. Even though she is rich, she is very friendly to everyone and the students all love her.

Unfortunately, the woman in charge of the school does not like Sara and when her father dies on a business trip, the head mistress is angry that she will not get the money she is owed for Sara’s care. She makes her live in the attic with the maid and to do chores to earn her keep at the school. Sara is mistreated, but still remains kind to others and helps anyone she can.

One day, Sara finds some money and buys some food from a bakery. When the baker sees her give away most of the food to a beggar girl, he believes Sara is a princess and invites the little beggar girl to live with his family. Sara continues to teach the smaller children and withstands the abuse from the adults around her.

When a strange man moves into the house next door, Sara becomes friends with his servant. He is impressed with how kind she is and is angered about her treatment at the school. He secretly sends her food to help her in some small way. Eventually, Sara discovers something very important about the man who is helping her.

A Little Princess is an amazing book that proves again that dreams can come true. It also shows that even when life is not going the way you would like it, you should still treat others the way you want to be treated. The end of the story is very satisfying, but readers will want to know more about this special little girl.Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book "A Little Princess" begins as seven year old Sara Crewe is dropped off at a boarding school by her rich father.

I've watched numerous adaptations of this book into movies, but still nothing can beat the book. I just LOVE listening to the narrator, her voice was so absorbing, that I almost feel like I can see the characters. Wonderful job! :)

Subject: The Little Princess
An absolutely wonderful story and very inspirational. The narrator did a wonderful job to really make you feel as you were right there with Sara. This story makes you realize that you can never give up as one does not know what the future has in store.

I'm really worried about Sara--she suffers a lot but she had the ability to face such things. I don’t think I could handle being in such a position. The book never tells how she is able to cope. She was rich and became poor which is hard for people to face. I want to thank this book for helping me understand that life in not easy.
