Publisher's Summary

Since its first publication in 1885, Little Lord Fauntleroy has become a favorite with children. The move from New York to his ancestral castle comes as a shock to both Cedric and his new-found relatives, and while he comes to terms with aristocratic ways, they become more aware of compassion and social justice.

Audible Editor Reviews

This meticulous program does a good job with Burnett's classic rags-to-riches story. Kindly fate transports an American boy, Cedric Errol, to England when he is discovered to be heir to the earldom of Dorincourt. Prepared to hate the American upstart, the crusty earl finds he can't resist his grandson's love. Teresa Gallagher's gentle, refined voice brings the precocious Cedric into listeners' hearts with arresting success. Equally well depicted are the pithy sayings of the ancient earl and Cedric's mother's bell-like tones. Characters and significant dialogue appear seamlessly, and there are few continuity issues in the abridgment. Narration and script combine to present a merry audiobook.
