1926. Burnett, began as a novelist, but she is now best remembered
for her children's books including The Secret Garden and Sara Crewe
(which was later rewritten to become The Little Princess). Her
romance novels were also quite popular during her lifetime. In the
story of Little Lord Fauntleroy seven-year-old Cedric Errol, the
son of an American woman and a disinherited English Earl,
unexpectedly inherits the title of Lord Fauntleroy when all of the
the other heirs die. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt-who
has always disliked Cedric's mother-makes arrangements for Cedric
to come and live with him at the family estate, while Cedric's
mother will be given a nearby but separate home. Cedric's mother
agrees to this arrangement for the boy's sake, and he is forced to
live with his cranky and selfish grandfather. Can Cedric's kind and
generous nature, inherited from his mother, change the Earl's
outlook on life? See other titles by this author available from
