本书是《小公主》的前身。很多小女孩都期盼自己成为“小公主”,萨拉也同样如此。但是,她的历程却充满坎坷。本书展示了早期英国儿童性格的塑造和道德品质的形成,是儿童阅读的明智选择。

萨拉八岁的时候,被爸爸送往明钦小姐的寄宿学校。她在那里度过了不一样的贵族生活。然而,生活的突变为小莎拉带来了种种不幸与挑战,但是她英勇顽强地顶过压力和磨难。本书作为《小公主》的前身,虽然比《小公主》要短,但是主人公和基本主题不变。

When little Sara Crewe was eight years old, her father had brought her to England and left her with Miss Minchin, to be part of the Select Seminary for Young Ladies. Sara, who had always been a sharp little child, who remembered things, recollected hearing him say that he had not a relative in the world whom he knew of, and so he was obliged to place her at a boarding-school, and he had heard Miss Minchin's establishment spoken of very highly. The same day, he took Sara out and bought her a great many beautiful clothes -- clothes so grand and rich that only a very young and inexperienced man would have bought them for a mite of a child . . . Things take a drastic turn for Sara Crewe when she becomes a penniless orphan who endures cold, heartless conditions with spirit and dignity. While shorter than "A Little Princess," this book retains the essence of the main character and theme. Her dreams protect her from the harsh reality until one day they magically come true.

Frances Hodgson Burnett was an English playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1915).

In the first place, Miss Minchin lived in London. Her home was a large, dull, tall one, in a large, dull square, where all the houses were alike, and all the sparrows were alike, and where all the door-knockers made the same heavy sound, and on still days—and nearly all the days were still—seemed to resound through the entire row in which the knock was knocked. On Miss Minchin's door there was a brass plate.
