5.0 out of 5 stars A great story - not just for children 23 May 2005
By Amelrode TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Little Lord Fauntleroy is the dream Christmas story.

A sweet,decent and unspoilt boy with a heart of gold is winning over his old, disappointed and grumpy grandfather who happens to be an Earl. Reluctantly Grandpa has to acknowledge him as his heir.... reluctantly because his mother is an American; quite shocking for a British Earl. However, the new young Lord F. brings back life and happiness into the old cold castle and his grandfather's life. Then all seems to be lost as another heir appears. Well, all is well in the end and all at Christmas. A triumph over prejudices ang haughtiness, a triumph for decency and love. Can there be a better Christmas story?
What a damm sweet story, you mind think. This is just too much.... and well you may be actaully are right. But nevertheless it is wonderful and utterly enjoyable. I just liked it. And the movie based on this book (the one with Alex Guiness) is great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a pleasure 27 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
I read the novel in just two days. Despite the maybe childish and sometimes contrieved plot it is a delight. A "feel good" book.
The main character and his Mum, Dearest, make you remember that the world would be a simpler place if we were all like them.
Even if it can be easily placed within the traditional corpus of children's literature it is a great read for all ages.
A book that bears second and third perusals well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The magic of being a child... 6 Dec 2001
Format:Paperback
Frances Burnett's books were some of my best childhood friends, as I was growing up during the 60's in a bleak and grey country.
Cedric Errol is a sweet little boy and everything in this story can be explained trough love: he is inclined to love everybody and everything, and his love does change his not-so-sweet grandfather. The message I got from Little Lord Fautleroy as a child was that people have to be loved before being loveable, and that love CAN change things - it's still a good lesson to be learned.
And, of course, the book gave me and my brothers a perfect private joke we still use, about "aunt's sisters".
Turn your TV of, turn the gameboys of, sit all snug on the floor, with pillows and rugs, and read it for your six/seven year olds. It's magic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Little Lord Fauntleroy 19 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover
the story is cute, but cannot compare to Frances' other two books (The Secret Garden, and A Little Princess), regarding meaningful content.
I wanted a hardcover copy, and this one is beautifully made with oldfashioned fabric, and the illustrations look really authentic for the time the story is set in.
All in all, I liked it very much, although the price I paid wasn't exactly cheap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Little Lord Fauntleroy 14 July 2010
By Lady J
Format:Paperback
This little book is a children's classic. A really lovely fantasy of a story.
A world some people will snif and scorn at - but if you want pure escapeism, a wonderful little hero,
morals wrapped up in delightful innocence, in fact a 'Fairy Tale' then wallow in it. Nobody writes
these kind of stories today and a little bit of old fashioned 'feel good' fantasy is good for one occasionally.
