The Princess and the Suffragette is a seuel to The Little Princess which was one of my favourite books as a child I adored Sara Crewe and her story of friendship and determination So it was with great excitement and a little trepidation that I started to read this book I had no need to fear Holly Webb has taken the characters from a classic and given them a new lease of life Lottie's political awakening is a slow and honest journey She starts to see things in a different light and decides to follow her heart and find out about the suffragette movement In The Princess and the Suffragette we find out about Lottie's story about the social atmosphere she is growing up in about the restrictions on her life in Miss Minchin's school Review originally published on my blog is written with a gentle hand this is a what could have been story A glimpse into the parts of The Little Princess that were left unanswered a suggestion as to how things might have unfolded I loved reconnecting with the characters and getting to know a few new ones Did I hate and pity Lavinia as much as I did as a child Did I still want Miss Amelia to grow a backbone Did I still want to be best friends with Ermengarde The answer to all of the above is a resounding yes An inspiring heartwarming story about standing up for what you believe in I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

It is 1913 nine years after the end of A Little Princess saw Sara Crewe escape Miss Minchin's orphanageLottie the smallest girl from the original story learns about the Suffraget. I've been really interested in Webb's recent turn towards some of the classics of children's literature She's not alone in this of course Jacueline Wilson delivered the delightful Four Children And It whilst Kate Saunders wrote the powerful Five Children On The Western Front Webb turned towards the rich grounds of The Secret Garden with the seuel Return To The Secret Garden and in The Princess And The Suffragette delivers a seuel of sorts to Sara Crewe Or What Happened At Miss Minchin's also known as A Little Princess I say 'of sorts' because this is both a seuel and yet also a sort of spin off taking the character of Lottie and exploring the circumstances that bought her to Miss Minchin's Seminary It's an interesting angle to take what with Lottie being to be fair a bit of a moppett in the original books and locating the subseuent story within the confines of the school I don't know about you but spoilers when Sara left I left as well These books don't look back Not much of children's literature does oof there's a sweeping statement; forgive me we'll explore this at a later date Where Webb shines is in how accessible and genuine she make all this feel Lottie's slow political awakening and the parallels to A Little Princess never feel forced They never feel definite either edged with uestions than answers and that's another credit to Webb Books provide answers sure but they should never be pat or glib and sometimes presenting an answer as another uestion is the truest thing that a story can deserve And that's what Webb achieves here; Lottie uestions her assumptions and decisions and Sara thankfully is mostly in the background This isn't a book which attempts to appropriate Sara with all the goodwill of the original book and repurpose her narrative for some forced farcical reasons but rather a book that seeks to understand the charged social atmosphere that the young ladies of that time were being asked to exist within And I like that I am grateful to the author for a review copy

Ugh I wanted to like this but I hated it The tone was so different from the original All my favourite characters were blah Hated the suffragette thing It felt so forced Plus it happened later than when “A Little Princess” was publishedLuckily I was able to cancel my Indigo order of this book Ugh it has left a bad taste in my mouth I need to read the FHB original tonight
