Publisher's Summary

Young Cedric Errol lives in poverty in New York with his mother. When his father, who was disinherited for marrying an American, dies, Cedric is summoned to his grandfather's English estate. While the crotchety old Earl planned to transform the boy into a docile, traditional lording, it is Little Lord Fauntleroy who does the converting. Through his goodness and innocence, he wins the hearts of his English relatives who welcome his mother with open arms, and he teaches the Earl some valuable lessons about the true meaning of nobility. This classic tale embodies the author's belief that "Nothing in the world is so strong as a kind heart".

Audible Editor Reviews

Donada Peters gives a charming and nuanced performance of the beloved novel Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the first-rate writer of children’s literature, who was born in England and moved to the United States at the age of 16. When impoverished little Cedric Errol’s father dies, his grandfather - the Earl of Dorincourt - asks him to leave New York for England. The earl intends for the boy to be groomed to become an English gentleman, but in the end it is Cedric who imparts important life lessons to his grandfather.

This book rocks no matter how old you are!

The narration is excellent, the book is fantastic! The audio quality is pretty good too. Oh, and watch the movie too. Unlike many audio books you only care to hear once, you can listen to this one over and over and not get tired of it. Very uplifting!

Uplifting

The publisher’s summary does a good job of describing the story, so I will only add that this is an excellent book for all ages.

Louis M’s, term, “Uplifting” is the best one word summary of this story. With so many heavy, depressing books and news items surrounding us, it’s nice to escape into a story like this one.

I doubt that there ever was a child as perfect as Cedric Errol, but that’s what makes the story so good.

The narration by Donada Peters is excellent, as is the audio quality.
