When Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school, the well-to-do student has every material comfort that her doting father can buy as well as the headmistress's fawning approval. But when Sara falls upon hard times and is left to the mercy of the suddenly vindictive headmistress, she must rely on her optimistic outlook, lively imagination, and innate goodness to see her through a reversal of fortunes. English-born novelist and playwright Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924) wrote dozens of warmhearted books and is best known for her three children's classics: A Little Princess, The Secret Garden, and Little Lord Fauntleroy. The National Education Association selected A Little Princess as one of its Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children, and a survey by School Library Journal ranked it as number 56 among its Top 100 Children's Novels. Frequently adapted for stage and screen, it remains a favorite with dreamers of all ages.

Sara Crewe is the star pupil at her London boarding school in A Little Princess (1905) until news arrives that her father has died penniless. Sara is forced to become a servant, but she stays hopeful by imagining that she is secretly a princess. And in Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), seven-year-old Cedric Errol lives in New York City and unexpectedly learns that his grandfather is an English earl. The Earl wants to teach Cedric about power and privilege, but little suspects that the innocent young American will completely change his own life. Soon to be a live action Disney movie starting Colin Firth and Julie Walters, The Secret Garden joins A Little Princess and Little Lord Fauntleroy in one deluxe illustrated volume, a perfect gift for young readers or for family libraries.
