Wishing for Tomorrow

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Review

Long ago 'The Little Princess' was rescued from Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies, but what about the friends and enemies she left behind? They continued to live and learn there.

Lavinia made friends with the neighbours and discovered to her joy that education could be her route to freedom. A new maid joined the household and altered the balance of power; while Ermengarde missed her friend, Sara, and wrestled with envious feelings when she began her new life away from the school.

Young Lottie continued with her mischievous tricks and started a fire that changed everyone’s lives.

Evocatively illustrated, this warm and humorous sequel to Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess provides a happy fairytale ending for all the original characters, even Miss Minchin.
