“The best version of the Cinderella story in modern idiom that exists,” is how Marghanita Laski describes Frances Hodgson Burnett’s Little Lord Fauntleroy. It is the charming story of a seven-year-old American boy, Ceddie Errol, who lives on the edge of poverty in New York. One day he is visited by a gruff lawyer at the tiny house he shares with his widowed mother, and his life is never to be the same: waiting in England is Dorincourt Castle, where Ceddie is to reside as the sole living heir to the irascible, proud, and selfish Earl of Dorincourt. It will be up to this virtuous boy to capture and warm the Earl’s heart and transform him into a doting grandfather and responsible landlord.

This stirring classic is a great family listen.

    " I love The Secret Garden and A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and I wanted to read more of her works, so I read this one! It is the story of a young boy who unexpectedly becomes the heir to an earldom, and through his sweet innocent nature softens the heart of his crabby grandfather. It was thoroughly enjoyable, and several times almost brought tears to my eyes, even though the moral lessons are sometimes a trifle heavy-handed, and young Cedric juat a touch too saccharine for reality! "

    " This was an interesting book, more readable than I'd expected. Of course the descriptions of the little boy were too perfect to be believable but I did find the character likeable rather than annoying. I'd seen it referenced in another book that was set in the early 1900s and wanted to understand the reference. "
