Description

Sara Crewe is the brightest, richest, and most generous girl in Miss Minchin’s school for girls, and her father gives her everything she might desire. But when her beloved father dies, Sara’s friends and prized possessions are suddenly taken away, and she is banished to the attic and forced to work as a common drudge. Fed only crumbs, she still saves enough to feed her pet rat, and she tells wonderful stories to comfort Becky, the kitchen maid. Using her special ability to play make-believe, she transforms her hardships into an unforgettable adventure. And soon, even her wildest wishes begin to come true, as her real identity is revealed once and for all.

This touching classic has been a favorite with generations of children and adults who have delighted in Sara’s happiness, wept over her sorrows, and perhaps shared her need: to be recognized as someone unique and special.

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849 -1924) was an English-born author of romances and books for children. After moving to America in 1865, she established a popular reputation with the publication of That Lass o’ Lowrie’s in 1877. She is best known for such novels as Little Lord Fauntleroy, The Little Princess, and The Secret Garden.

Between spiritual and bourgeois dream

I bought this book for my 8 year old daughter who is all in princess’s phantasies, to learn some more English. For this purpose the Little Princess is excellent, because it’s language is reach, but kind of easy to follow, since the story is interesting, the characters well developed, scenes so richly but not excessively described and chapters not to long.
Her writing reminded me of Charles Dickens stories which I devoured so eagerly when I was a little older than my daughter is now... But on the other hand I don’t like this double moral standards and a hidden message than happiness is only permanent in lordly possessions....
All in all I believe it is a nice book for an 8 yer old princess ;)
