When wealthy Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school in London, she is determined to settle in and make friends.
Charismatic and popular, with a big heart and a love of storytelling, she seems to be succeeding.
Her father always said she was a Little Princess, and she knows exactly what it means to be a princess: to be kind, understanding and polite.
That is, until tragedy strikes. Sara must fight harder than she thought possible to remain both strong and kind in the most difficult of circumstances.
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett is part of the Penguin Sisterhood collection, which celebrates best-loved classic books, written by some of the greatest female authors in history.
