Young Cedric Errol lives in poverty in New York with his mother. When his father, who was disinherited for marrying an American, dies, Cedric is summoned to his grandfather's English estate. While the crotchety old Earl planned to transform the boy into a docile, traditional lording, it is Little Lord Fauntleroy who does the converting. Through his goodness and innocence, he wins the hearts of his English relatives who welcome his mother with open arms, and he teaches the Earl some valuable lessons about the true meaning of nobility.

This classic tale embodies the author's belief that Nothing in the world is so strong as a kind heart.

Listener Opinions

    " When I was a child I loved Frances Hodgson Burnettand read The Little Princess over and over again. When I got my Kindle at the start of 2012 it was the first book I downloaded and I enjoyed it as much as ever. However I'd never read Little Lord Fauntleroy and decided to make that an early Kindle read too. I wasn't disappointed: so refreshingly kind yet without sentimentality. I thought it was a beautiful story and its exploration of the relations between classes and between Britain and America was a fascinating insight into some of the attitudes of the day. I think any sensitive child would love this story and it works well for adults too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cali | 1/29/2014

    " I have to say Little Lord Fontleroy was more of a lackadaisical stroll through the park, which was not was I expected. I liked the characters and the moral, but the actual writing was less than I expected from the author of my favorite book, The Secret Garden. But! Now I have read it and I really do like the storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabrielle | 1/23/2014

    " Super cute, but her other books are better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Christensen | 1/22/2014

    " A sweet read. Good for youth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tess | 1/19/2014

    " This was an adorable read, but somehow it didn't grip me as much as The Secret Garden did. Maybe it's just me, but Cedric is a little too flawless and the story is all too smooth with no real conflict except for the last quarter of the book. Apart from that, it's a lovely children's story that is worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 gina | 1/10/2014

    " also very charming, yet predictable. fun re-read, though. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anja | 1/9/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 1/9/2014

    " 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 Everett Darling | 12/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libbet | 12/26/2013

    " I may have read this a very long time ago, but I didn't remember enough of it that I'm calling it as read this year. I've found some Burnett that I KNOW is new to me, as well, and was free for my new Kindle, so there may be more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aroma | 11/7/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 11/1/2013

    " Though not nearly as good as her other children stories such as: A Little Princess, or The Secret Garden I found it enjoyable to some extent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy-Anne | 8/25/2013

    " Fantastic movie with a young Rick Schroder if you can find it!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Varsha Seshan | 6/29/2013

    " It's absurd to love a book about a perfectly good boy, but this one is lovely each time I read it! This particular edition has several typos, though, and that is rather off-putting. The book still remains a favourite despite it all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 3/2/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 2/1/2013

    " I've never understood why this moralistic book was such a hit in the author's lifetime....perhaps it had a message for the Edwardians which doesn't reverberate for us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Bevan | 11/29/2012

    " If you need to read a story with a perfectly happy ending, read one of Burnett's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimball | 10/9/2012

    " sad, but turns out to be wonderful as the mother and grandfather come to like each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 10/6/2012

    " 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' | 10/2/2012

    " 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 Ellen | 8/25/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. The reviews are fairly mixed so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a quick read and since I don't remember reading Secret Garden, maybe it was better. Nothing to freshly compare it to. I'll have to read it soon and see which I like more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 11/23/2011

    " Fauntleroy's mother has been added to my collection of wonderful mothers in literature. I love the Little Lord as well; sweet thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 7/29/2011

    " 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 T | 7/22/2011

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janalee Z. | 5/22/2011

    " One of my favorite children's classics (but good for adults too!). It helps remind me the importance of having a positive nature. "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anja | 3/9/2011

    " 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. "
