This edition has no pictures except the cover one, which is a good one (the scene of the sixpence coin).
I preferred this to what I had seen elsewhere, that is, ugly pictures, which may damage the reader's vision of the novel, and understanding of the period.
Of course, as a French I was rather spoiled about "A Little Princess" pictures, because we had editions with illustrations by Marc Bloch, a true wonder.
Just three of them :
When will a publisher be aware of the existence of these pictures, and use them for an original, English publication?
About the novel itself, I would say, it suits very young girls only if they are quite mature (particularly, if they are intellectually gifted; and/or if their maturity has been forwarded accidentally, by woes for instance, or family misunderstanding) ; if not, I would not recommand this novel before ten. It may not please egoist girls. Boys? I really do not know. Maybe, more if they are sensitive.
