This classic British tale tells the story of Sara Crewe, a young girl who grows up at a boarding school run by the unkindly Miss Minchin.
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess tells the story of Sara Crewe, a young girl who has been left at a boarding school by her wealthy father. There, she displays all the attributes of an ideal pupil, treating the other children with kindness and compassion. But the headmistress, Miss Minchin, is jealous of Sara’s wealth and seizes the first opportunity to put the young girl “in her place” when misfortune strikes. This handsome Word Cloud edition of the classic children’s novel includes black-and-white illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts and a heat-burnished cover with foil stamping, making it a wonderful addition to the bookshelf.
