Imagine having an incredibly beautiful 7-year-old boy look up to you in every way and believe you good even when you are nasty. Would you want to reform yourself or disabuse him of his illusions because he is so annoyingly flawless?

Would you believe that I have never heard of Little Lord Fauntleroy until this year? When I was a kid, I only knew of little Cedric "Ceddie" Errol through this morning cartoon that I watch during summer vacation, same as where I first found out who Sara Crewe was. Ceddie is a little boy who lives with his mom and dad in New York. His dad passed away, and shortly after, they found out that Ceddie was actually the next in line as the Earl of Dorincourt in England, a

Having read 'A Little Princess' earlier today I wanted to read another book by the same author to see if they all had the same.... thick writing style. Answer - they do.

This is the second time I have read 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' and I admit I wasn't as enchanted with it this time. The little lord seems much too perfect, and the conclusion is almost gift wrapped it is so neat and tidy.

I would still call this a children's classic but there are other books I would chose for them to read above this

I very much enjoyed this book. Yes, of course Ceddie is too good to be true. But that's okay--the point of the book is the love others feel for him, and how that love influences them, so it's okay with me that they love a child who's nearest thing to an angel you'll find on earth.

If you've ever seen the 1936 movie version with its cast of Hollywood stalwarts--Freddie Bartholomew as Ceddie, Dolores Costello Barrymore (Drew's grandmother) as Dearest, C. Aubrey Smith (the perennial crotchety Englis

Since I am also doing extensive research on LLF for my Victorian Literature for Children class, my review may be more biased than usual.

I love this book. I love its cultural significance and its pacing, romantic notions of aristocracy, contrast with British and American life, and the simplicity of the conflicts. The story is adequately summed up and not concluded in the final page or paragraph (see MacDonald's Princess and Curdie for my full disgust at this phenomenon.)

Cedric is the perfect mini

I found this book in a box in my garage. I started reading it because it looked interesting. The one that I currently have is over 110 years old! Because it was a very old classic, I decided to read the whole book. Maybe it's because I adore books, or maybe it's because I love grammar, or because I love writing reading and grammar, but I loved this book. It made me chuckle when I found words like anyone, but in two words: any one. I loved this little story of a little boy named Cedric who was to ...more

Little Lord Fauntleroy, by Frances Burnett, reveals the highest character reflected in a small child. At the same time, the story contrasts it with the lowest of humanity’s traits, and it is within this context that the story intersects. It isn’t simply an old tale for the 1800s, for us to look at and wonder if people are the same today (which they are). It is a remarkable tale that demonstrates how just one person can make a positive difference in the lives of so many people. It tells us to bel ...more

I have watched three different versions of this story. The book is far better than any of them.

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.

Here Hodgson began to write, in order to sup ...more
