Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to settle in and make friends at boarding school. But when she learns that she'll never see her beloved father gain, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury for hard work and a room in the attic. Will she find that kindness and genorosity are all the riches she truly needs?

Sara Crewe, a pupil at Miss Minchin's London school, is left in poverty when her father dies, but is later rescued by a mysterious benefactor.

Excerpt provided by Syndetics

Sara Crewe, ten years old, leads a delightful life. Her father, a British officer, provides her with all of the comfort his wealth and charm allow. When he dies, a cold-hearted schoolmistress turns Sara into a drudge. How does she cope?Sara is unquenchable. Her father taught her that every girl is a princess, rich or poor. That gift - along with grace, spirit and imagination - give her serenity and puts the fall from riches to rags in perspective.

Booklist Review

Gr. 5-9. When Sara Crewe's father dies and leaves her penniless, she is banished to the attic by her teacher and made to live like a drudge.

Horn Book Review

Neither of Burnett's classic stories is done justice by being shortened and simplified to fit the chapter-book format. These adaptations lose the beautiful language, mystery, and depth of character of the originals. The decorative black-and-white illustrations for Secret Garden don't contribute much to an appreciation of the story.
