Written by British-born author Frances Hodgson Burnett and first published in 1905, A Little Princess tells the story of young Sara Crewe, privileged daughter of a wealthy diamond merchant. All the other girls at Miss Minchin's school treat Sara as if she truly were a princess. But when Captain Crewe's fortune is sadly lost, Sara's luck changes. Suddenly she is treated no better than a scullery maid.

Sara's fierce determination to maintain her dignity and remain a princess inside has intrigued and delighted listeners for almost 100 years, even inspiring a recent popular feature film.

    " This book taught me a lot of lessons. No matter how tired or no matter what kind of bad day your having, be nice to people. I look up to Sara. She's such a good example that despite of all her hardships, humiliation, and starving she did not complained, not once, and she's still good to people-- just like a true princess. She's like a 40 year old woman living in a child's body because she's more mature than anyone in the story. I also liked the parts where she tells stories she created herself. All the fairy tales, the Bastille, her doll Emily reminds me of my own childhood. It makes me want to go back to my childhood days.This book has a very true and wonderful message. It made me realize that what you reap is what you sow. Sara was good and nice to people and in the end she became rich. Always-- always be good to people, because that's best legacy you could leave behind. "

    " Yes, I just reread this book. Classic story. Do not be confused by the movie - Hollywood made some major changes to the story and Shirley Temple looks NOTHING like little Sarah Crewe. But I loved reading it again. The only drawback for some is the old-fashioned language/phrasing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Calleigh | 2/10/2014

    " This is probably my favorite book of all time. I've probably read it fifty times (literally) in the last twenty years. There were times in my childhood that I would finish reading it just to turn it to the first page and start again immediately. If I could be any fictional character, I would want to be Sara Crewe. Is anyone really that good? Also, I wouldn't mind being that rich. . . "

    " This book teaches the values of life... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianne | 2/1/2014

    " One of my favorite reads, right up there with any Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables or Emily of New Moon) or Louisa May Alcott (Little Women, Eight Cousins, etc.). I thoroughly enjoy the story of a sweet girl who encounters a drastic change in her life, taking her from a life of leisure to a life of drudgery. What's so refreshing is her attitude and actions. She chooses to behave like a princess, whether she is dressed in finery or rags. Great model for all girls. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiarabeth | 1/28/2014

    " The character of Sara Crew, well we can say I fell in love with her as a child. I wanted to be the little Princess. I can't wait for my niece to be old enough to read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberta McDonnell | 1/20/2014

    " Read this first in primary 4 and it stayed with me ever since, the story gets under your skin in a big way. My kids loved it too, more recently of course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Su Ann | 1/19/2014

    " Too touching, i was crying almost through out the book when Sara lost her father. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deedevin | 1/18/2014

    " Such a beautifully written story. It gives you smiles, tears and a sense of reality. There is magic in it. I found the sentences too long but I guess that's Mr. Bogdan's style. Simple yet charming! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie | 1/14/2014

    " A really lovely, feel good book which got better as the story went on. I'm so glad i bought this book and am looking forward to reading it with my daughter when she is old enough. "

    " something i can never tire of reading, beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christian Singer | 12/6/2013

    " A Little Princess is a great story about having good self esteem and hope. From an exotic life to a life of mistreatment and rags, Sara doesn't lose sight of who she is. That's a good lesson for kids and adults. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ilana Waters | 11/7/2013

    " One of my favorite books of all time. Quite different from the pink, sparkly princesses we are used to today (not that there's anything wrong w/them ;-). This book is about being a princess on the INSIDE--still a great message, over a hundred years later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nadia Sarah | 10/2/2013

    " I've read it when I was 7 or 8, and still remembering the whole story now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 10/24/2012

    " I love this book. It is a good book to read aloud except for the part where I cry when Sara finds out that her father is dead. The reader can imagine herself with Sara in the attic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magalie Bourgault | 2/17/2012

    " Loved the book, but i'm even more in love with the movie, an all-time Christmas Classic for me ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TRJ | 8/4/2011

    " A very beautiful book that should be in every home's bookshelf. A story of the little girl who sees her glass half full and tries to be happy and graceful in the most unfortunate circumstances. A book with a message that you can always be a princess by your act and not by birth alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/22/2011

    " I read this with Lilly and we both enjoyed it. I really liked the characters. Although, I was extremely disappoitned that the ending differed from the Shirtley Temple movie. I wont say anymore because I don't want to spoil it for anyone. "

    " Another fine novel of Hodgson Burnett. One of those books who makes me reflect that no one is perfect, however one has to look for doing the right no matter where one comes from. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/12/2011

    " Read this cause it was for my book club. I'd never read it before---or seen the movie--but enjoyed it alot. I guess it is a "kid book" but there are lots of things lessons in there for everyone to learn about acting classy, accepting lemons in life, etc. "

    " "I am a princess, all girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty or smart or young. They're still princesses, all of us." Frances Hodgson Burnett

    One of my favourite books- so beautiful. =) "
