The edition of "A Little Princess", from 1937, that I found today, has illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts. Lovely illustrations as they're not as sentimental as some I've seen before.

I've no idea how many times I read "Lilla prinsessan" ("A Little Princess") by Frances Hodgson Burnett, as a child. I loved the book and I loved the cover illustration, how I envied Sara that pink dress. Being chubby and blond, I think I knew that I'd look like an puff pastry with pink icing, in a dress lika that — but one could always dream.
