Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060278919, Hardcover)

When kindhearted Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school, she seems just like a real little princess. Then a sudden misfortune turns her life upside down, and Sara is banished to the school's dreary attic. It takes all of Sara's imagination and a little bit of magic to turn her misfortune around and prove she is, at heart, a little princess. In this first-ever picture-book adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess, Sara Crewe and nineteenth-century London come brilliantly alive under the expert hand of award-winning author and illustrator Barbara McClintock.
