Main Market Ed.
Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Book DescriptionWhen young Sara Crewe is brought from India to London by her doting father to join Miss Minchin's school, she can have little idea of the change in circumstances that lie ahead. While at first her life of privilege continues, the tragic death of her father and failure of his business change everything. In a dramatic reversal of the tradition fictional 'rags to riches' formula, Sara plunges from privilege to penury in the space of one day. Now she is no longer a princess but a beggar, and must depend on the power of her imagination and optimism and the kindness of strangers to lift her above the misery of her circumstances. She is cast out from the comfort of her rooms as Miss Minchin's 'show pupil' into the chill despair of a lonely garret, and set to endure back-breaking work in the school. But if humility, patience and dignity are virtues to be rewarded, will Sara perhaps experience another reversal in her fortunes? A Little Princess is a timeless and gripping drama about the transformative power of positive thought and the imagination.With an Afterword by Anna South.

Author Biography - Frances Hodgson Burnett
Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in Manchester, England, in 1849, the third of five children. When her father died in 1853 the family was plunged into poverty, and the young Fanny began writing to escape the grim realities of life. In 1865 the family moved to America where she met her future husband, Dr Swann Burnett. Her book Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and was an instant success, launching a career that would produce over forty books. It was followed by the publication of A Little Princess in book form in 1905 and The Secret Garden in 1911. Frances Hodgson Burnett died in 1924.
