Little Lord Fauntleroy

Frances Hodgson Burnett

The cover for the Standard Ebooks edition of Little Lord Fauntleroy.


In Little Lord Fauntleroy, an American boy named Cedric is transported from the impoverished streets of New York City to the grandeur of his ancestral home, Dorincourt Castle. Here he learns how to become an English aristocrat from the Earl of Dorincourt, his cold and cynical grandfather.

Frances Hodgson Burnett published this, her first children’s story, in St. Nicholas Magazine in 1885. Because of the story’s popularity, a year later, it was published as an illustrated novel to be sold around the world and translated to 20 different languages.
