Overview

Sara Crewe is a gifted and well-mannered child, and Captain Crewe, her father, is an extraordinary wealthy man. So Miss Minchin, headmistress of Sara's new boarding school in London, is pleased to treat Sara as her star pupil--a pampered little princess.

But suddenly, one dreadful day, Sara's world collapses around her. All of her lovely things are taken from her and she is forbidden to associate with her friends. Her father has died penniless in India.

Miss Minchin can now show her greedy and meanspirited nature to its fullest. The little princess is reduced to a shabby drudge. But Sara does not break, and with the help of a monkey, an Indian lascar, and the strange, ailing gentleman next door, she not only survives her sufferings but help those around her.

The publication of Little Lord Fauntleroy in 1886 cemented her popularity as a children’s author, although she continued to write adult fiction as well. Frances Burnett Hodgson died in Long Island in 1924.

The book is fine but there's a problem with the formatting in this version and it's just too distracting to try and read. All the lines are cut short.

I've read this book before, and I loved it. It is a great story, all the way through. There are a few parts that are a little sad, but there are just as many happy parts.

This book was very good. I would rate it more than five stars if I could! It is about a seven-year-old girl named Sara whos father workes in India. She is what people would call "spoiled", but the truth is that her father is filthy rich and loves Sara so. Entering her into boarding school, th father tells the headmistress to give Sara anything her heart desires and he will pay for everything at the end of the year. Making friends only with the lower-popular girls, Sara finds out from the headmistress her father is dead. She is put to servant work with her friend Becky. I will never spoil the ending for you, but besides that short half summary, this book is one of the best books i have ever read!!
