When Sara Crewe's beloved father dies, her fortunes at strict Miss Minchin's boarding school are reversed. Once, she had the finest toys and treasures - now, she is orphaned and penniless, and is forced to become a servant. But as Sara knows, being a princess has nothing to do with being rich. And as she will learn, there is nothing that bravery, imagination, kindness and friendship, cannot overcome. A beautiful classic that has captured the hearts of generations.
