A Little Princess is the story of a beleaguered young girl with an unbridled imagination. Separated from her father and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent from Fort St. Louis to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue – helping to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As Sara wins the affection of the other boarders she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress. Sara counters all Miss Minchin's best efforts to degrade her with the grace and virtue of a little princess.
