At Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, young Sara Crewe enjoys the friendship of her classmates and the staff—much to stern Miss Minchin's disdain. When Sara is unexpectedly impoverished, she is forced to become a servant under Miss Minchin's control. To escape her dreary life, Sara imagines herself as a princess, and her experiences soon teach her that being a princess on the inside counts more than any outward expression of royalty. First published in 1905, A Little Princess is a much-loved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of The Secret Garden. This edition is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics for young readers. It features the full color art of Ethel Franklin Betts, an elegant bonded-leather binding, a ribbon bookmark, and distinctive gilt edging. This volume will provide hours of pleasure for readers of all ages.
