A Little Princess: Book Giveaway!

I’ve started a Fun Friday Book Giveaway this month, and this time I’m giving away a copy of this lovely Puffin in Bloom edition of A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett! These beautiful, hardcover books feature cover art by Rifle Paper Co.

I’ve always loved A Little Princess, but I have to admit that I’ve seen the movies more times than I’ve read the book. (I think I’ve read it only 2-3 times?) As much as I do enjoy other film adaptations, there was a PBS Wonderworks TV miniseries I grew up with that I watched over and over. It featured Amelia Shankley as Sara, Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire) as Mr. Carrisford, Maureen Lipman as Miss Minchin, and Miriam Margolyes as Miss Amelia.

I used to pretend I was Sara when she was rich and wear a frilly dress and try to make a fancy parlor in the corner of our living room, but I loved dressing up as a scullery maid even more. On foggy evenings, I went outside and carried an ash bucket around (from our fireplace), pretending I was in London. I guess I really liked the drama of it! Did anyone else love acting out their favorite books and movies? (Maybe it’s just me?)

  4. I love the Shirley Temple version of the Little Princess best! My son just had to read Heidi for his English, and he enjoyed it so much that he wanted me to read it. It reminded me about Shirley Temple’s version of this, and I have been wanting to watch Shirley Temple’s The Little Princess again! I did read it as a child, but I don’t remember much about the book itself.

    1. I’ll need to watch it again as well!

  5. I would like to enter. I’ve not read this book either.

Thanks for sharing with us, Rachel!
