Such a beautiful story and excellent reading. The reader actually had me tearing up. I usually listen to audio books while I work and during this one i caught myself just sitting and listening more than once. Beautiful, beautiful performance of such a touching story.
This is the novel from which "The Little Princess" (1939) starring Shirley Temple was adapted. This original version is just different enough from the classic movie to keep listeners guessing whether it will end the same way. Sara Crewe's time at Miss Minchin's boarding school for girls is well fleshed out in this 1905 novel, which gives more insight into Sara's character, bearing, and thoughtfulness to others -- even when straitened circumstances befall her. A delightful, magical tale by the same author who wrote "The Secret Garden" and "Little Lord Fauntleroy." This Librivox version is read by a wonderful reader as well :)
Thank you, Karen, for yet another great read! This is such a heart-rending story that will have you laughing and crying as you listen. Lots of life lessons for the princess (or prince) in all of us.
Loved Little Princes. Some of the reasons are that the reading by Karen Savage is excellent. Also, the author, Franses, left poetic magic at the end of her story. I'm still waiting for new authors to pick up on these strings.

I was telling Mom about this story I found her trying not to cry and she told me that it was to sad to carry on.I try' d to tell Mom more next day however Mom did the same thing. I'm SO sorry that I didn't tell you how AMAZING job Mrs/Miss Savage did
An excellent book that speaks to us even today about charity, kindness, sharing and compassion. We all can be Sarah ' s. There are far too many who are uncharitable. I loved the book; it's a shame it had to end. Karen Savage read it beautifully. Thank you. More please
wonderful book; great reader
I am quite the fan of Karen Savage's narrations at this point. I very much appreciate her selections of titles and have enjoyed this particular one twice. Thank you for your contributions to the Librivox community, Karen!
Karen Savage is the Best!

I love this book. The story nearly always makes me tear up! And in my opinion Karen Savage is my very favorite LibriVox reader!! Her British accent definitely enhances the experience. :-)
