In every nook and cranny, high and low, they sought for him He had vanished as a star vanishes when it drops from its place in the sky.

From the author of such children's classics as The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy, and A Little Princess, The Lost Prince is the enchanting story of a young boy discovering his true destiny. Twelve-year-old Marco knows he is being trained for something, but he isn't sure what. All his life he has traveled with his father in secrecy, learning many languages and the ways of a gentleman, but forbidden to speak about their country of origin, Samavia.

Listener Opinions

    " Loyalty, father son relationship, love of country, friendship, and so forth abound in this book. I thought it would be a little more "active" but overall a good read. Josiah wasn't impressed though. I'll have to reread it to him when he's older. We were trying to find a more "boy" book as a read aloud but the writing style is a little on the boring side at times so we'll keep looking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 2/13/2014

    " This was another fun book from Frances Hodgson Burnett. It was more of an adventure than her other books; I really liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 2/7/2014

    " Hodder & Stoughton 1915, illustrated. "

    " I grew up loving "Secret Garden" and "A Little Princess," so I was excited to start this one. It's... fine. I don't know. It's not very suspenseful. I think the only one who doesn't see the end coming is Marco, for all his intelligence. Maybe he was in denial? It was sweet. Burnett writes well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/21/2014

    " I enjoyed most of story part of this book, but by the end of the book I had grown quite weary of Burnett's persistent Confucian message. I find that Burnett and Kipling seem to advocate similar religious messages, but Burnett can be a bit annoying and repetitious, while Kipling fits his message in naturally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alia | 1/16/2014

    " This is adventure for kids on an epic level. A secret plot to restore the lost heir of a kingdom overthrown, but set in realistic Europe... I like the characters and the way they stick together through their larger-than-life adventure. A fun read, even though it's a bit dated (by the author of Secret Garden) and so the reader can guess the ending long before the character does. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/13/2014

    " I read this recently as an adult and quite liked it. I was a bit tired of it by the end as it dragged on but overall I enjoyed it and I'm sure would have gained more pleasure if I was younger. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gemma | 12/26/2013

    " It is such an exciting story for young people. You never forget the prince's father. I want to read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 12/18/2013

    " eh. this book is a little tedious. pretty slow with lots of dialogue that bored that crap out of me. idk, i guess i need a bit more action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C.E. | 12/11/2013

    " Am reading old adventure stories to see what might appeal to my Halo and new Star Warsvaddicted godson. This may be a good one, up there with Captaains Courageous. Interesting to note, this would be too vocabulary challenging for modern kids by and large. terrifying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lotta | 10/26/2013

    " I'm enjoying it so far, although it feels dated, with the royal bloodlines and noble birth and destiny stuff, but it's still an exciting adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiyrna Nightschild | 9/28/2013

    " Simple, but inspiring. His heritage was a bit obvious throughout the whole book, and his being blind/oblivious to that fact was a bit stretching things. But other than that, it was a good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 5/13/2013

    " I found this book when I was starting to notice boys, so this just added to my excitement. It shows how much better a book can be if the characters will just be good. The whole thing would have been ruined if somebody you expected to respect had fallen short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/12/2013

    " A story I hadn't heard of from her, and it was a lot of fun and very interesting to read. The plot was pretty obvious, but it would be great for a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 penny | 12/12/2012

    " Given my love of the secret garden, how did i not know of this??? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deena | 10/22/2012

    " I love this book. It is an archetypal, romantic story of political intrigue, but it is also a window into a time period. Burnett upholds the values of monarchy and empire, so this is a bit dates, perhaps, but a delightful story none-the-less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 8/26/2012

    " Just reread it and it is as awesome as ever! One of my favorite books. Available for free on Kindle! Yay! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teemarie | 8/21/2012

    " Very different from her other stories-would read this to my kids when they are a bit older. Really enjoyed the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Fosco | 6/10/2012

    " A good read but a bit longer than it needed to be "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 12/12/2011

    " A good "boy" advenutre story, but not for boys born in the late 20th century or in the 21st century. My favorite book of all is A Little Princess by the same author and while I had read many of her books, I had never read this one. It was fine, just doesn't stnad the test of time. "

    " Some of her best work! Gripping, intriguing story! I loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kel | 8/18/2011

    " I thought the "Laws" philosophy was way overdone. The basic plot was fun. Another inexpensive Kindle download. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 7/8/2011

    " Only recently read this as part of my drive to read more classics. Although obviously a children's story, it was touching and actually really enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 10/19/2009

    " This is a sweet story, but I liked "The Secret Garden" a lot more. The story was a little slow and predictable, and the main character was so darn perfect it was hard to identify with (or believe in) him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karina | 7/6/2009

    " it sometimes was confusing, but overall it was pretty good, i liked when they trvel all over europe o give the "sign"' "

    " What a great book about mission. Preparing and being ready when the time came. Also about respect. LOVED IT. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 astried | 3/9/2009

    " I've read it as a child and at that time it was translated into Indonesian language and had unbelieveably bad illustration, still I read it again and again, so it should say something about the quality of the story "
