Sara Crewe is one of the most vivid figures in children's fiction. Born in India and sent to school in England, she is, at first, treated like a princess by the teacher, Miss Minchin. But when it is evident that Sara is not the possessor of a princess's fortune, she is dispatched to live in the attic and become a servant.
It is the remarkable way which Sara copes, imagining things are not as bad as they seem, which has made her a role model for many young girls, who also hope to experience her happy ending.
