Description:
'Something will come if I think and wait a little' - in a soft, expectant voice. 'The Magic will tell me.'

Sara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her father dies. Now penniless, Sara is demeaned, abused, and forced to work as a servant. How this resourceful girl's fortunes change again is at the centre of A Little Princess.

This edition appends excerpts from Burnett's original 1888 novella Sara Crewe and the stage play, as well as an early story, 'Behind the White Brick,' allowing readers to see how one of the best-loved stories in all of children's literature evolved. In his delightful introduction, U. C. Knoepflmacher considers the fairy-tale allusions and literary touchstones that place the book among the major works of Victorian literature, and shows it to be truly rich and resonant novel.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by U. C. KNOEPFLMACHER
