About the book
Rediscover this classic tale about the power of imagination.
First published as a book in 1905, A Little Princess chronicles the journey of young and wealthy, Sara Crewe, who is nicknamed a princess by her boarding school friends. When she is suddenly orphaned and impoverished, she is forced to become a maid to those who used to serve her. Never losing sight of what is important and relying on her friends and her wild imagination to get through the dark times, she learns that it is more important to be a princess inside rather than out. With illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts, this beautiful, vibrant clothbound hardcover is unabridged and makes a great addition to every home library.
