Board Books

First published in 1905, "A Little Princess" is one of Frances Hodgson Burnett's most beloved stories. Expanded from an earlier serialized short story entitled "Sara Crewe: or, What Happened at Miss Minchin's", it is the story of 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 Sara, but pretends otherwise while she is wealthy, 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 an errand girl. To survive those hard times Sara imagines herself to be a little princess as she awaits her rescue from a mysterious benefactor. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and includes the original illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts.
