Product Description

About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in Manchester, England, in 1849, the third of five children. When her father died in 1853 the family was plunged into poverty, and the young Fanny began writing to escape the grim realities of life. In 1865 the family moved to America where she met her future husband, Dr Swann Burnett. Her book Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and was an instant success, launching a career that would produce over forty books. It was followed by the publication of A Little Princess in book form in 1905 and The Secret Garden in 1911. Frances Hodgson Burnett died in 1924.

This one is for keeping on the shelf for older children. It's very wordy and very small print, but a classic to keep.

I bought the complete works of Francis Burnett, but I was unable to find out how to get to the second page to read the rest! Without changing each page to get to them! Is there a simple way to do this? How do I delete books I don't like?
I am a very new reader of Kindle, mu family bought it for my 80th birthday

Classic story in a small, neat package 23 April 2010
By Too Little Space - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Collector's Library has issued many volumes of the classices for for adults and children. Each book is in an easily-packed size and small enough to fit in a pocket. Quality hardback binding with gilt edges and a ribbon marker. The story is complete and unabridged, so if you want to reread this heartfelt tale from your childhood on a business trip or in the park it is an easly volume to grab and carry along.

Remember the first time I read this book as a teenager and really enjoy this beautiful edition with it's compact size and gilded edges. Just beautiful.

This is a lovely book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

I felt the text stopped short - in the end - of giving attention/credit to Mistress Mary and Dickon for restoring Colin - a little late to fret about that!
