really liked it

One of that handful of fictional characters whose names have passed into common usage, Little Lord Fauntleroy embodies the author's belief that "Nothing in the world is so strong as a kind heart."

Young Cedric Errol lives in poverty in New York with his mother. On the death of his English father -- disinherited for marrying an American -- Cedric is summoned to the family castle by his grandfather. There the crotchety Earl plans to transform the boy into a docile, traditional lordling.

But Little Lord Fauntleroy does the converting. Through his goodness and innocence, he wins the hearts of his English relatives, who welcome his mother warmly.

A classic story from Frances Burnett set in late 1800's America and England. A delightful story of goodness and kindness.
