About this deal

After 4 years at the school, during Sara's 12th birthday party, the owner found out that Sara's father had died and had lost all of his money. But when the terrible news of her father’s death and failed financial investments arrives, Sara is suddenly left a penniless orphan. As time progressed however, she began to suffer from depression, although she managed to begin writing stage plays as well as books. These young fiction colour readers take Tony Ross's beloved Little Princess to a whole new audience.

I highly recommend parents to read this to their children and discuss with them the differences of that time period. 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. Burnett's captivating storytelling and memorable characters have made her a beloved author for readers of all ages. The novella appears to have been inspired in part by Charlotte Brontë's unfinished novel Emma, the first two chapters of which were published in Cornhill Magazine in 1860, featuring a rich heiress with a mysterious past who is apparently abandoned at a boarding school.

The Princess Trilogy" was an updated version of the classic, with the title character named Molly, rather than Sara. Perfect for inspiring reading confidence in young bookworms, these full-colour first readers will take Tony Ross's ever-popular Little Princess to a whole new audience. But fortunately for the Little Princess, the forgotten items mysteriously appear when her back is turned, as if by magic. She comments on how hard it must be to an animal that everyone treats with fear and disgust when it is just trying to feed itself and its family.

She has always enjoyed pretending, weaving stories for herself and the other children at the school, but also play-acting roles for herself and her doll.One of the most faithful adaptations, quoting many dialogues from the book and adding only a few new scenes, including a prologue set in India. Between them they devise a scheme whereby Mr Carrisford becomes "The Magician", a mysterious benefactor who transforms her barren existence with gifts of food and warmth and books – snuck in by Ram Dass. She saw that you were a hard-hearted, worldly woman, and that I was a weak fool, and that we were both of us vulgar and mean enough to grovel on our knees for her money, and behave ill to her because it was taken from her—though she behaved herself like a little princess even when she was a beggar.
