A Little Princess
by Ashley Griffin
based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Young Sara Crewe would much rather spend time exploring her imagination than start her new boarding school at Miss Minchin's Academy! Before leaving to join the war, Sara's mother assures her that all girls are princesses and reminds her to be brave in the face of monsters. Through her mother's absence, Sara takes solace in her stories and new friends. But when her mother dies in the war, Sara is forced to work at the school as a servant. Can she still be a princess as a servant? As she struggles to adjust to her new life, Sara discovers what it truly means to be a princess through bravery and kindness.
