About this deal

When Sara Crewe is sent to Miss Minchin's school for young ladies, her indulgent father provides for her as if she were a little princess. There were three books in the series, which ended in a similar way as the original: Molly's Heart, The Room on the Attic, and Home at Last. The story of how she becomes in the truest sense, a real princess will carry every reader, through laughter and tears, to a remarkable ending brought about with the help of a pet monkey, a fairy-godfather Indian lascar, and a mysterious old gentleman. She stands up for the mistreated errand boy, showing the same grace she demonstrated while she was still a privileged student.

Condition: This book is in good condition for its age with some rips around the edges of the dust-jacket, an inscription on the endpaper and tanned pages. Frances began writing for magazines to support the family, but her mother died in 1870, and she married Doctor Swan Burnett in 1873, leaving the U.Princesses Prefer Pink: A significant scene in which Sara meets Becky is marked by Sara's carefully described rose-pink dancing costume, complete with rosy pink cheeks and a wreath of pink roses in her hair. Becky hammers the point home by comparing Sara to her memory of briefly glimpsing a real princess dressed all in pink.

She’s given a stick-insect, a goldfish and a few other low-maintenance pets, but she still wants a bunny. Carmichael outright says she would have been better off in the streets than at Miss Minchin's school. But ever since he died, leaving her alone and penniless, she's been caught in the cruel clutches of Miss Minchin, the headmistress at the Select Seminary for Young Ladies, where Sara once studied.So, in the attic she pretends to be a prisoner in the Bastille, or on occasion that food brought by her one remaining friend at the school is part of a sumptuous banquet.

Alone in her attic, she makes friends with sparrows and a family of rats, and dreams of her room with all she needs in it. Little Sara Crewe isn't really a princess, but she's got the most wonderful imagination that I know no one in real life can have. Extreme Doormat: Miss Minchin's sister is far kinder but is completely dominated by her until the end of the story when she finally speaks her mind. This a beautifully told story of a young girl, who's life is destined to take some dramatic turns of fortune.She pretends she really is a princess who's just fallen on hard times like in The French Revolution. Yet, despite having her own pony and carriage, private room and personal maid, Sara is never a snob to her fellow pupils. Darkest Hour: When Sara's attic party is caught and Sara is subjugated to another day without food, and Sara glumly tries to sleep to dream of something nice.

Well, he does also suggest that Miss Minchin might do her the "favor" of keeping her on as a student.Pet the Dog: Miss Amelia defends Becky when Miss Minchin accuses her of stealing food and convinces her to drop the accusation. Princess Sarah, a Filipino 2007 remake, loosely based on the popular 1985 anime but with fantasy elements. Sitting on the Roof: One of the only things Sara likes about her Fallen Princess circumstances is that her attic room has a skylight, and she can stand up through it to people-watch and see the sunset.
