About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924) was a British-American novelist and playwright, best known for her children's stories, which transcended the barriers of age, bringing joy to children and adults alike. Born in Manchester, England, Burnett moved to the United States in 1865, where she began her writing career. Her stylistic approach delicately blended realism and romanticism, often exploring themes of social disparity and the resilience of children in adversity. Her literary footprint is marked indelibly by her classic works, 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (1886) and 'The Lost Prince' (1915). 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' created a sensation with its tale of Cedric Errol, an American boy who discovers he is heir to a British fortune, tackling themes of class and identity with a charming narrative. 'The Lost Prince' took a different turn, delving into the realms of adventure and secret societies, reflecting Burnett's versatility as a writer. In addition to her children's novels, Burnett wrote adult fiction and plays. Her work has been praised for its vivid characterizations and her ability to convey deep emotional truths. Burnett remains a cherished figure in literature; her stories continue to be adapted for stage and screen, attesting to their enduring appeal and her exceptional ability to capture the complexities of the human spirit.
