Since its first publication in 1885, Little Lord Fauntleroy has become a favorite with children. The move from New York to his ancestral castle comes as a shock to both Cedric and his new-found relatives, and while he comes to terms with aristocratic ways, they become more aware of compassion and social justice.

    " This book was really enjoyable and fun to read, but the ending seemed to be so out of nowhere that it didn't do the overall story much good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/30/2014

    " One of my favorite books to read to my boys. "

    " A sweet story! I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope Lydia likes it, too. "

    " A bit disappointing for someone who so enjoyed "A Little Princess" as a child. I do think it was typical of writers of the day to hit children over the head with the qualities needed to be considered "good". (I'm thinking about Horatio Alger stories too). But there is nothing subtle in this story about a "good" boy and his saintly mother who transform the life of his grandfather (rich but miserable). I know, I know, "A Little Princess" was hardly subtle in its good versus evil setup. I am afraid to re-read it now! "

    " If Frances Hodgson Burnett were to summarize the text himself, he would likely call it the tale of a little boy from the side streets of New York who rises to the sudden call of the English aristocracy. The boy's father had been the son of an Earl, but passed away soon after the boy's birth. The storyline is quaint and pleasant, very much suitable for children. It is apparent, however, that the text was originally composed in serialized form and not as a novel. The same descriptions are often repeated verbatim, emphasizing the simplicity and goodness of the boy and his mother. If looking for any action, there is very little in the text. A young reader might become easily bored by the text, but it does teach morals of kindness, generosity, and the like. The setting and description is plentiful, however, The book was an interesting read for me, but it was so in an analytic way, and I do not think I would rate the text as highly had I been simply reading for pleasure. "

    " there are so many things that could be said, i suppose, in critique of this sweet story. i will speak none of them. charming, uplifting, and altogether wonderful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T | 12/24/2013

    " I learned that even children can do good things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/20/2013

    " LOVE Frances Hodgson Burnett but this was not nearly as good as Secret Garden or Little Princess. Same hard scrabble beginnings but this little boy was too perfect, beloved by all and even though Little Princess has a healthy dose of required suspension of belief this one was over the top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merry Simmons | 12/16/2013

    " This book was predictable, yet an enjoyable easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara VA | 12/14/2013

    " Somehow I missed another classic, I loved the other F H Burnett books but just never got around to this. Was it because it was about a boy? I am not sure, but I loved it as much as Secret Garden and Little Princess. The only complaint that I had was that there was too much about poor spelling! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbí | 12/10/2013

    " I adored this book - or, perhaps I should say, I adored the very little Lord Fauntleroy. His innocent, loving spirit brought many smiles to my face and made me desire to be sweet and generous like him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 12/5/2013

    " An enjoyable book with beautifully written comparisons between the English aristocrasy and American working classes. The surface story is the classic tale of rags to riches while the family reconcilation resulting from the boy's presence adds depth to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aroma | 12/2/2013

    " Very very sweet! One of my favorite books whan I was little. Something I would want my children to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Everett Darling | 5/6/2013

    " unbelievably unrealistic portrait of a child, makes me wonder if Ms. Burnett had ever spent any real time with one, however, as enjoyable for this reason as any other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea Ursaner | 3/17/2013

    " Such a cute book I loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 3/3/2013

    " Darling, predictable, happy book. I love this author for "pick-me-up" reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abigail | 1/20/2013

    " A very sweet book. I loved Little Lord Funtleroy's innocence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwonam | 1/17/2013

    " Pure syrupy indulgence. Like drinking a potful of saccharine during a Thomas Kinkade exhibition. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leeandlaura | 1/2/2013

    " I loved this book. All the characters were well written and I found myself caring about what happened to them. The plot is simple. The characters are engrossing. I certainly think this is one I will read again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 9/4/2012

    " Every little boy should have this book read to him. Little girls too, but especially boys. The purity of the character gives no doubt that goodness can be just as contagious as evil and that one's ability to influence others should never be underestimated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kailey | 6/25/2012

    " not my favorite of her works, but enjoyable nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 11/3/2011

    " Though my least favorite of Burnett's novels, I still enjoy reading about the sweet little boy and how he changes the heart's of his family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anjane' | 9/4/2011

    " This was such a cute book! It was an easy read and kept me entertained the whole time. This story reminded me of the childlike qualities that I would like to develop in myself, and shows how one child can make a difference in so many lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 5/18/2011

    " Darling, predictable, happy book. I love this author for "pick-me-up" reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/15/2011

    " One of my all-time favorite books. Such a sweet story about goodness. A lovely book that I have read many times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 the.Bookworm | 4/12/2011

    " The story is okay so far. Having read A Little Princess and The Secret Garden, I'm quite familiar with Burnett's way of writing so, yeah, I'm having fun reading. The little lord is adorable... XD "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 3/26/2011

    " This is a sweet book, and it certainly gives Paul something to aspire to. How fun to find out you're a Lord and will some day be an Earl. My only complaint is that Little Lord Fauntleroy really is too good to be true. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 3/22/2011

    " I love Frances Hodgson Burnett's books. "

    " One of my favourit books when I was younger. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eivilys | 2/23/2011

    " A GREAT book, everyone should read it. It shows how everything can change just because of one pure and gentle heart. All the same, there's Pollyanna that shows the same thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/16/2011

    " I read this book several times as a child, and even now as an adult, I find myself charmed by little Cedric and how he manages to win over the heart of his grandfather. It's definitely a type of literature that you won't be able to find these days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/7/2011

    " I read this myself and then listened to it with the kids. I loved the message of the power of a mother's influence. I liked the goodness in the book and the message that we are happier as we serve and miserable as we are selfish. We all enjoyed it very much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ros | 2/6/2011

    " This is one of those I loved as a child, but now I am finding that I can rather too easily put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kel | 2/3/2011

    " It was better than I thought it would be. Very precious. I downloaded it for free on my Kindle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 1/26/2011

    " Great little book. Makes you want to be a better person. The kind of book that I need to read frequently. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 1/15/2011

    " Loved this heartwarming tale. Not sure why I haven't read it sooner. I love the little princess and this is the male version. Guess I needed to get it free on my ipad first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dj | 1/9/2011

    " Such a sweet and adorable book! It was quite similar to her other books, but I still loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwonam | 1/6/2011

    " Pure syrupy indulgence. Like drinking a potful of saccharine during a Thomas Kinkade exhibition. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bella9Tink | 12/21/2010

    " omigosh..... This book is sooooo good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mckinley | 12/20/2010

    " Finally got around to reading this. Didn't realize it was by the same author as Secret Garden and Little Princess. A male version of Pollyanna perhaps. Too good to be true. But a sweet story all the same. Full of qualities we'd like to see in an Earl-to-be. A quick, easy read too. "
