Publisher's Summary

"The best version of the Cinderella story in modern idiom that exists" is how Marghanita Laski describes Frances Hodgson Burnett's Little Lord Fauntleroy. It is the charming story of a seven-year-old American boy, Ceddie Errol, who lives on the edge of poverty in New York.

One day he is visited by a gruff lawyer at the tiny house he shares with his widowed mother, and his life is never to be the same: for waiting in England is Dorincourt Castle, where Ceddie is to reside as the sole living heir to the irascible, proud, and selfish Earl of Dorincourt. It will be up to this virtuous boy to capture and warm the Earl's heart and transform him into a doting grandfather and responsible landlord.

    "A Real Boy Becomes a Lord"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a children's story that is a fun listen. My older children (teens) thought it a little predictable and too 'perfect', but that didn't stop them from listening to it when it was on in the room. We did enjoy it. It was neat to see how his Mother put her son's best interests ahead of her own. She was exemplary. So often we say what we think without restraint instead of choosing to do what is right. It is a bit of a morality tale, but there is enough of a good story to make it fun to listen to.


    What other book might you compare Little Lord Fauntleroy to and why?

    THis story reminds me a bit of Mark Twain's book, 'The Prince and the Pauper'. Both have boys who have to live real lives to learn how to be a good ruler.


    Any additional comments?

    I would listen to this again.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a story I remember from childhood and it was just as good as I remembered. The narration was excellent and kept me interested. It is definitely worth listening to if you want a simple story to listen to in the evening. The American accent wasn't bad and the characters were suitably brought to life. I will look for other audible books from the authors and from the narrator, Joanna Ward.
