Product description

‘I pretend I am a princess, so that I can try and behave like one’

Without her beloved father and miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. Luckily Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things and her power of telling stories wins her lots of friends. When a letter arrives that brings disastrous news, the wicked headmistress Miss Minchin forces Sara to become a servant. Her lovely clothes and toys are taken away from her. She must work from dawn until midnight. How will Sara cope with her new found poverty? Can her imagination help her overcome this horrible situation?

BACKSTORY: Read why Jacqueline Wilson loves this book and find out which pupil of Sara’s school you are most like.

    One of the sweetest children’s books I’ve ever read! I love this author – her “The Secret Garden” is wonderful too. It’s such a touching story.
