About the book
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.

Read Review   Want to write a review?

Superbly realised... very true to the original... a cleverly entertaining book.

Clever, sweet, lively and well-written.

A superb job of breathing new life into familiar characters. ****

A pitch-perfect reconstruction of the attic world of Miss Minchin's Seminary.

Warm and wise.

Charming, stylish, often funny, and frequently very moving.

Funny, clever and vividly characterised - I loved it.

'Wishing for Tomorrow is a warm, witty read that offers more realistic advice on climbing out of poverty than inheriting a diamond mine'

'Wittily illustrated by Nick Maland, packed with humour and just enough heartache to keep readers involved, this charming novel is a real treat'

'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.'

Wonderful.
