A Little Princess

Title: A Little Princess

Author:Frances Hodgson Burnett

Pages: 192

Summary: Sara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchin's 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 girl's fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of children's literature.

My Rating: 7/10

What I liked/disliked about the book: The movie was a childhood favourite. and it wasn't until February or March, when I finally got the book and read it. The story was like I remember to a certain extent. It wasn't as kind as the story was in the movie, but I liked it a little better. It wasn't a perfect happy ending, but it was a great ending nonetheless. I really enjoyed Sara's character, even in the worst of times she tries to make the best of it, and the story is so heart warming. It isn't a overly funny, or epic fantasy adventure like we see in most children's books, but a story full of heart warming characters who you will fall in love with (as will children who read them) Sara is one of those character's you'll remember. And that makes this book worth reading (on top of the story of course)

Would I recommend it to read: Children and adults who are still young at heart

What to read next: Secret Garden and Anne of Green Gables two great childhood classics
