Overview

Nothing is quite the same at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies since Sara Crewe went away with the Indian gentleman. Lavinia is once again the girls? leader, but she hungers for a more interesting life. Lottie is still busy making mischief, as is the new neighbor, the red-headed boy. Alice, the new maid, brings a breath of fresh air and slapdash practicality to the school. But Sara is much missed ? especially by her best friend, Ermengarde. Can Ermengarde find her own way and be happy? Will she and Sara ever be able to be friends the way they were before? Hilary McKay opens the door to Miss Minchin's again and invites listeners to take a peek at the new adventures beginning in a beloved tale.
