After 4 years at the school, during Sara's 12th birthday party, the owner found out that Sara's father had died and had lost all of his money. Even in her most challenging circumstances, Sara maintains her kindness and generosity, choosing to share the little she has with those less fortunate. Reading it from an adult perspective gives one a fresh understanding of what it was like to be poor and friendless in London of that era.

note Since even pet rats only live about four years, and since Melchie was full-grown when Sara came to the attic, it's very likely that he lived out his natural lifespan during the events of the book and may have simply died without Sara finding out.It's highly addictive to get core insights on personally relevant topics without repetition or triviality.

Of course, as a French I was rather spoiled about "A Little Princess" pictures, because we had editions with illustrations by Marc Bloch, a true wonder. She’s given a stick-insect, a goldfish and a few other low-maintenance pets, but she still wants a bunny. This is a stroke of luck, as Sara’s father dies without a penny to his name, leaving Sara equally penniless. Then her father dies and his wealth disappears, and Sara has to learn to cope with her changed circumstances.

But Sara has more than wealth, she has a loving heart, a quick mind, and above all a vivid imagination. Summarily banished to an attic room and forced to work as an errand girl after her father's death leaves her destitute, warm-hearted Sara Crewe – until then a model pupil at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies – finds solace by imagining she is a princess disguised as a servant. This adaptation is notable for the more cruel and violent script, focusing on the abuse that Sara and Becky have to suffer from Miss Minchin and Lavinia. She slaps Lottie in the face for apparently no reason, and she takes delight in Sara’s downfall, even tattling on her and her friends when they sneak treats.

However, her most famous work is "A Little Princess," which tells the story of a young girl named Sara Crewe who faces adversity with courage and kindness.

Miss Minchin is left with a sizable debt for Sara's school fees and luxuries, including her birthday party. Once, she had the finest toys and treasures – now, she is orphaned and penniless, and is forced to become a servant.
