Cali I was struggling to picture you weeping at the story of the Little Princess bravely overcoming her toilet training challenges.
I could really see Lipman and Margolyes in those roles.
In the modern film they made Becky black and sneaked in racism as an issue. Which sounds wrong but actually worked surprisingly well - I think they moved it to New York as well.
When I read the FHB books as an adult the thing that struck me most was how well-drawn her child characters are. They're all completely distinct characters - Sara Crewe, Mary Lennox, Dickon, Colin, Cedric Errol, each one (except for Mary) nauseating in a completely different way.
