9781402213120: A Little Princess (Hear It Read It Classics)

Frances Hodgson Burnett's enduring tale, brought to life in a new book-plus-audio edition.

In one of the best-loved classic tales for children, Sara Crewe is sent to England to attend Miss Minchin's boarding school for girls. Her time there starts wonderfully as she is treated just like a princess. Unfortunately it is because Miss Minchin is hoping to gain a piece of Sara's family fortune.

But when Sara's wealthy father dies and leaves her penniless, Miss Minchin makes Sara do the worst chores in the house. Still, as badly as Miss Minchin treats Sara, with a little help from her friends and her imagination, Sara is determined to find happiness no matter what.

A Little Princess is read by Royal Shakespeare actor Lucy Whybrow, with music and effects to set the mood.

With the included audio you can HEAR the entire book, word for word, READ ALONG with the audio, or READ the story on your own.

Each HEAR IT READ IT classic presents the world's greatest stories in an easy-to-read abridged format. The included audio contains a dramatic reading-with music and sound effects-that match the text, word for word, so children of all ages and reading levels can read along.

Perfect for high-level young readers experiencing the classics for the first time and also ideally accessible for "reluctant readers," HEAR IT READ IT classics give young readers the best possible introduction to the world's timeless tales. It's a terrific way for adults to re-experience the thrills of a classic tale, too!

From the Publisher:

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.
