Kidlit 16: A Little PrincessBlogathon 2006
(Hey look! Book posts are back! Maybe not every hour, though.)
Ohhh, such a great book. (I love the Shirley Temple movie too.) Another boarding school one. Another orphan book. It's a riches-to-rags-to-riches sort of fairy tale, with human kindness substituting for magic. It's charming, but takes a real look at social issues of its time. And it even teaches about the Boer War!
I like Burnett's The Secret Garden, too, but the lesser known A Little Princess is definitely my favorite.Posted by Kat at July 30, 2006 04:00 AM
