When Sara Crewe is orphaned she is stripped of her lovely things and forced to work as a servant at the boarding school she once attended. A classic tale of courage and imagination.

‘I pretend I am a princess, so that I can try and behave like one’

Without her beloved father and miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. Luckily Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things and her power of telling stories wins her lots of friends. When a letter arrives that brings disastrous news, the wicked headmistress Miss Minchin forces Sara to become a servant. Her lovely clothes and toys are taken away from her. She must work from dawn until midnight. How will Sara cope with her new found poverty? Can her imagination help her overcome this horrible situation?
