4.0 out of 5 stars A bit saccharine sweet........... 21 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
but still a good read.

When little Cedric finds out that he is heir to an Earldom, he must leave his beloved America with his Mother and sail to the ancestral home of his forebears. There he meets up with the curmudgeonly Earl (his Grandfather) who has already made his mind up to hate the child. However, little Ceddie is so sweet and kind that the Earl's heart is melted. There is a slight hiccup when a possible usurper to the title appears on the scene with his Mother but thanks to Ceddie's American friends who discover the woman is an imposter the hiccup doesn't last for long.

Reading this as an adult, I can't believe that an 8 year old boy would be quite so angelic and the way the author writes poetically about his golden locks and his big brown eyes really is a bit too much to believe. However, reading this to a child or for a child to read alone would probably be a really nice experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's All Sit at the Cool Kids Table 1 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Forget what you think you know. "Pollyanna" is now a synonym for a cock-eyed and foolish optimist, but the original character is a tough, spunky, resilient pistol with a no-nonsense attitude. "Little Lord Fauntleroy" now often means a prissy or precious little twit in a black velvet suit. Not so. Cedric, the Lord's real name, may be kind, affectionate and passionately good-hearted and gentle, but he is also smart, observant, direct, and totally shaped by the manly virtues and graces we all admire. If there were a cool kids table in the world of Victorian fiction, Lord Fauntleroy would lead the gang by his sterling example and distinguished bearing.

Indeed, in her forward to Simon and Schuster's 2004 edition of this book, Polly Horvath described Lord Fauntleroy as being so popular that he was effectively the Harry Potter of his era. How cool is that?

So, even though this was written in 1895, and even though it is a bit stiff and prim in places, the tale of Little Lord Fauntleroy is fun, instructive and engaging. Cedric is a fascinating and appealing companion. There is no melodrama but there is much to engage the eye and ear and there is much that would amuse and entertain an adventurous but calm young reader. This kid has class and style and heart; he should not be forgotten or misremembered, and you will be pleasantly surprised and rewarded if you give this book a try.

Please note that I found

5.0 out of 5 stars How can anyone not like it? 25 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This pleasurable and inspiring book is the perfect book for anyone, whatever sort of person they might be. It helps if you can understand the slang American of some of the characters but you will get the gist of it, even if your American isn't perfect.

Little lord Fauntleroy is a sweet, good-mannered, and charming little boy of seven, who gets on with his normal life until an unexpected event takes him from his home and friends in America to his grouchy Grandpa in England. He finds out that he is a lord and from then on his life changes dramatically, but he never forgets his friends in America, and they are the most important when an ill-tempered woman threatens his lordly position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Lord Fauntleroy 7 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's actually a really good story about a 7 year old boy living in New York who has to leave a simple life and go to England as, due to deaths of relatives, he has inherited his title name.
He could be insufferable but he's not which is the cleverness of the writing. A good read and I will look for more from this author.
It is a book that can be read by children and adults with equal interest. I read it as a boy and should have grown up like the boy in the book! Bit late now in my 70's!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I remembered 23 April 2014
By Ally B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was quite interested to see how the author managed (for most of the time) to describe a perfect little boy - kind,considerate, strong and good, without causing the reader to become nauseated. She did manage that and it is a nice story to read for a little escapism and innocence

Adorable story for children, great characters and as it is free will strongly recommend.

Cedric grows up in America but one day his world changes when he learns he is actually Little Lord Fauntleroy and the story follows his adventures in England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Took me back to my childhood 15 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this book, I first read it when I was about 8 years old, now nearly 64 I still love it, not sure that today's 8 year olds would enjoy it, no mention of computers or televisions!

In my opinion Frances Hodgson Burnett is a master story teller

It's of it's time. The story is very twee which can make it a bit sickly to read in places, but its a story of good prevailing, and it takes very little thought to take in.
