Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis: From the world-renowned author of Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden, a story about a girl with an unquenchable capacity for forgiveness, trust, and hope…

A strange little child, with old-fashioned ways and strong feelings, seven-year-old Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin’s London boarding school like a little princess: with splendid clothes of velvet, lace, and silk, beautiful dolls, furs, and even a French maid.  But when a terrible misfortune leaves her penniless and alone, Sara’s spirit never wanes. Here, in one of the best-loved children’s stories in the world, we follow the adventures of the irrepressible Sara as she introduces us to a series of unforgettable characters: the perpetually cross Miss Minchin; the spirited and infinitely loving Large family; and the warmhearted scullery maid Becky. And when a mysterious Indian gentleman moves into the house next door, Sara’s life is transformed once again, in a delightful tale as timeless as the dreams of young girls everywhere.
