About this book
For the first time in over 10 years the "Puffin Classics" have been given a complete overhaul - with contemporary and attractive jacket designs and new introductions by some of the very best children's authors of today. The relaunch commences with 12 books this month, followed by a further 8 in August, and more throughout 2009, and there will be a major PR and marketing campaign. The audio versions are also being relaunched. "A Little Princess" is introduced by Adeline Yen Mah. Ages: 8+.
Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to make friends at boarding school and settle in. But when she learns that she'll never see her beloved father again, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury for drudgery and a room in the attic.
