A Little Princess (World Digital Library Edition)

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

eBook

2 of 2 copies available

A Little Princess moves adroitly between “fantasy” and “reality,” playing with the categories until the reader is pleasantly unsure which is which. It is this toying at the edge that makes the story so appealing to children because it encourages them to believe that their own ordinary lives could be filled with “magic.”

Looking out of her dreary attic at the hostile setting of gothic London, Sara Crewe uses her imagination to create a secret world. The children at the seminary repeatedly manage to keep delightful, magical secrets from the domineering adults who try to rob them of their freedom and autonomy.
