To prepare his daughter, Sara, for society, wealthy widower Captain Ralph Crewe enrolls her in Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies. Unspoiled and genial, Sara is given all the luxuries her father can afford—and the obsequious Miss Minchin is happy to indulge. But when her father dies and his fortune is lost, Sara is forced into servitude, stripped of her privileges and possessions, and subjected to Miss Minchin’s true cruel nature.
But as A Little Princess proves, with cleverness, resilience, selfless goodwill, and true friends, a child can be rewarded with infinite riches.
