Sara uses the magic of her imagination---along with Ermengarde's food basket---to transform her bleak garret into something lovely. But just as the party begins, an enraged Miss Minchin bursts in and spoils everything. The girls are sent to bed, with Sara and Becky still hungry. Yet in a surprising turn of events, the Magic Sara always tries to believe in seems to prove real the next morning. When she awakes, her room is transformed, not by imagination this time, but by a real fire, warm bedding, delicious food, and books.
