Wishing for Tomorrow The sequel to A Little Princess

by Hilary McKay

Wishing for Tomorrow The sequel to A Little Princess Synopsis

Hilary McKay revisits Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies after the events of A Little Princess and Sara Crewe's happily ever after. But Sara is much missed - and most acutely by best friend Ermengarde, who laments that 'nothing is the same as it was before'. But life must go on at Miss Minchin's as new friendships are made, rivalries continued, lessons learned and, most importantly, fairytale endings are had.

Wishing for Tomorrow The sequel to A Little Princess Press Reviews

Superbly realised... very true to the original... a cleverly entertaining book. * School Librarian * Clever, sweet, lively and well-written. * Times * A superb job of breathing new life into familiar characters. **** * Books For Keeps * A pitch-perfect reconstruction of the attic world of Miss Minchin's Seminary. * Independent * Warm and wise. * Sunday Express * Charming, stylish, often funny, and frequently very moving. * School Librarian * Funny, clever and vividly characterised - I loved it. * Bounemouth Daily Echo * 'Wishing for Tomorrow is a warm, witty read that offers more realistic advice on climbing out of poverty than inheriting a diamond mine' * Daily Telegraph * 'Wittily illustrated by Nick Maland, packed with humour and just enough heartache to keep readers involved, this charming novel is a real treat' * Nicholas Tucker, Independent * 'Handsomely illustrated by Nick Maland, it has a humour and a humanity of it's own, and adds to, rather than detracts from, the original.' * The Sunday Times * Wonderful. * Guardian *
