How Sarah Stanley earned her name.


Writer: Heather Conkie
Director: Bruce Pittman

Synopsis: A travelling con man skips town with the school library funds. Sara befriends the reclusive inventor Jasper Dale and together they stage a magic lantern show to replace the stolen funds.


Highlights/Analysis: Jasper Dale is harassed by Sara's rival Sally Potts and fellow lackey Jane Spry. The girls' taunting ends in disaster when Jasper fumbles the magic lantern projector, and consequently sets the hall ablaze. Sara and her cousins confront Sally and force her to confess her actions, afterward dropping her into the leech infested school pond. There appears to be a theme with Fanny Tarnbush that gold digging and money grubbing doesn't pay; however, it's interesting to note that the thief Mr. Beedy escapes and there is no mention that he ever pays for his crime.
