              When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It was true, too. She had a little thin face and a little thin body, thin light hair and a sour expression. Her hair was yellow, and her f...ace was yellow because she had been born in India and had always been ill in one way or another. Her father had held a position under the English Government and had always been busy and ill himself, and her mother had been a great beauty who cared only to go to parties and amuse herself with gay people. She had not wanted a little girl at all, and when Mary was born she handed her over to the care of an Ayah, who was made to understand that if she wished to please the Mem Sahib she must keep the child out of sight as much as possible. So when she was a sickly, fretful, ugly little baby she was kept out of the way, and when she became a sickly, fretful, toddling thing she was kept out of the way also. She never remembered seeing familiarly anything but the dark faces of her Ayah and the other native servants, and as they always obeyed her and gave her her own way in everything, because the Mem Sahib would be angry if she was disturbed by her crying, by the time she was six years old she was as tyrannical and selfish a little pig as ever lived

              A beautiful tale of courage against adversity - The Guardian A Little Princess has been loved by thousands of little girls, but I claim that it is responsible for the shape of my life. - The Independent A must for everyone, a definite 'read before you die' sort of book. - The Gua...rdian *** What does it take to truly be a princess? According to Sara Crewe: It has nothing to do with what you look like, or what you have. It has only to do with what you think of and what you do. Motherless Sara Crewe has always been given everything by her father: love, attention, and all the dresses, dolls, and books a little girl could want. Most of all, he gave her a vivid imagination, a love of stories, and a strong belief in always doing the right thing. After having enrolled her in an expensive boarding school, her father's death leaves her at the tender mercies of the cruel headmistress who demands a lifetime of servitude. Join Sara as she endures the hardships and indignities of her new-found poverty and in the process learns what it really means to be a little princess. This is the perfect gift for girls and young women as they try to discover who they are and who they want to be! A Little Princess is one of Burnett's most popular tales: a timeless classic of the power of imagination and a good heart. It teaches the importance of showing respect and kindness to everyone whatever their race, station, or intelligence and shows that being poor in spirit is a choice that one need not make, regardless of the contents of one's purse. About the author: Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was an English-American author and playwright, best known for her best-selling children's novels, including A Little Princess, The Secret Garden, and Little Lord Fauntleroy. She was born in Manchester but after her father's death when she was just 3 years old, the family emigrated to America. When the family's fortunes declined as they lived in post-Civil-War Tennessee, she began writing professionally

              Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 - 29 October 1924) was a British-American novelist and playwright. She is best known for the three children's novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911). Frances El...iza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, Manchester, England. After her father died in 1852, the family fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling in New Market, Tennessee. There, Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870, her mother died, and in 1872 she married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor. The Burnetts lived for two years in Paris, where their two sons were born, before returning to the United States to live in Washington, D.C. Burnett then began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowrie's), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess. Beginning in the 1880s, Burnett began to travel to England frequently and in the 1890s bought a home there, where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her elder son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1890, which caused a relapse of the depression she had struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898, married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced him in 1902. A few years later she settled in Nassau County, New York, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery. In 1936, a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

              Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driven rather slowly through the... big thoroughfares.She sat with her feet tucked under her, and leaned against her father, who held her in his arm, as she stared out of the window at the passing people with a queer old-fashioned thoughtfulness in her big eyes.She was such a little girl that one did not expect to see such a look on her small face. It would have been an old look for a child of twelve, and Sara Crewe was only seven. The fact was, however, that she was always dreaming and thinking odd things and could not herself remember any time when she had not been thinking things about grown-up people and the world they belonged to. She felt as if she had lived a long, long time.
