Little Princess (Wordsworth Childrens Classics) by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Sara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchins Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her adored, indulgent father dies. Now penniless and banished to a room in the attic, Sara is demeaned, abused, and forced to work as a servant. How this resourceful girls fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of childrens literature. This unique and fully annotated edition appends excerpts from Frances Hodgson Burnetts original 1888 novella Sara Crewe and the stage play that preceded the novel, as well as an early story, Behind the White Brick, allowing readers to see how A Little Princess 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 an exceptionally rich and resonant novel.
