Wishing for Tomorrow

An enchanting brand new sequel to the classic story A Little Princess, written by Whitbread Award winner Hilary McKay. Sara Crewe has left Miss Minchin’s Seminary for Young Ladies, and is living happily ever after. But back at the school, Sara is much missed – most of all by her best friend Ermengarde, who laments that ‘nothing is the same as it was before’. But all the same, life must go on at Miss Minchin’s. And in the course of this book, new friendships are made, old rivalries are escalated, vital lessons are learned, and – most importantly of all – more fairytale endings come true!

“This charming novel is a real treat” Nicolas Tucker, The Independent
