Publisher's Summary

Sara Crewe is the brightest, richest, and most generous girl in Miss Minchin’s school for girls, and her father gives her everything she might desire. But when her beloved father dies, Sara’s friends and prized possessions are suddenly taken away, and she is banished to the attic and forced to work as a common drudge. Fed only crumbs, she still saves enough to feed her pet rat, and she tells wonderful stories to comfort Becky, the kitchen maid. Using her special ability to play make-believe, she transforms her hardships into an unforgettable adventure. And soon, even her wildest wishes begin to come true, as her real identity is revealed once and for all.

This touching classic has been a favorite with generations of children and adults who have delighted in Sara’s happiness, wept over her sorrows, and perhaps shared her need: to be recognized as someone unique and special.

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849 -1924) was an English-born author of romances and books for children. After moving to America in 1865, she established a popular reputation with the publication of That Lass o’ Lowrie’s in 1877. She is best known for such novels as Little Lord Fauntleroy, The Little Princess, and The Secret Garden.

    Story
    "Awful narration!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator's voice needs to be deleted and re-recorded with someone else at the helm.
    This sounds like it's being read out by a computer! I can't stand it! My children won't entrain listening to it but I've had it too long to ask for a refund now. It's awful!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Frances Hodgson Burnett again?

    Yes, so long as the narrator is different


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could be 100% better!
