      An umbelivable novel that really is emotionally powerful!

      A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett really is a beautifully written novel. It was originally published in 1905 and and is a children's novel. Considering the novel is over 290 pages I felt it would be a much better idea to buy it on audio CD for the children because they would likely to lose interest! I would really recommend this audio CD version of the novel if you have children or to give as a present. It is one of the great children's books in my opinion and is superbly written throughout. The novel is about a girl named Sara Crewe whose father loses a lot of money and is made bankrupt as a result. Sara used to have a fabulous lifestyle with great whealth but she now finds herself reduced to nothing and she now lives a life in poverty. At the school she goes to called Miss Minchin's, she was a very lucky child but she is now forced to work as a servant because she doesn't have the money anymore. Sara though is at heart a kind and loving girl and with all her might she knows that she can remain a princess inside her heart. It really is an inspirational novel and really has a magically essence to this. I really felt that this was the ideal children's book because it has a brilliant novel that attempts to teach children about some moral values. For example, how money does not change who a person is at heart and they can forever be happy despite not having great whealth. So I really felt that the novel gave some great messages and it really is beautifully written. The narrator on the CD Lucy Whybrow really does hav a superb and engaging voice that will keep you listening throughout the novel! I hope this was useful and thank you very much for reading!
