Cedric himself knew nothing whatever about it. It had never been even mentioned to him. He knew that his papa had been an Englishman, because his mamma told him so; but than his papa had died when he was so little a boy that he could not remember very much about him, except that he was big and had blue eyes and a long mustache, and that it was a splendid thing to be carried around the room on his shoulders. (from the first line)
An American boy goes to live with his grandfather in England where he becomes heir to a title and a fortune. Includes a new Introduction by the author of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." Reissue.
From the Publisher:
In the late-nineteenth century, seven-year-old Cedric leaves America to live with his grandfather in England, where he becomes heir to a title, an estate, and a fortune.An American boy goes to live with his grandfather in England, where he becomes heir to a title and a fortune.
Annotation:
Seven-year-old Cedric Errol, the son of an American woman and a disinherited English earl, unexpectedly inherits the title of Lord Fauntleroy when all the other heirs die. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt--who has always disliked Cedric's mother--makes arrangements for Cedric to come and live with him at the family estate, while Cedric's mother will be given a nearby but separate home. Cedric's mother agrees to this arrangement for the boy's sake, and he is forced to live with his cranky and selfish grandfather. The question is whether Cedric's kind and generous nature, which he inherited from his mother, change the earl's outlook on life.
Author Bio
Frances Hodgson Burnett
Frances Hodgson Burnett and her family moved from their native England to the United States after the death of Frances's father. The family settled in Tennessee; she was 16. Although she is best known for her writing for children, she was first an established novelist and playwright for adults; it was only after the birth of her two sons that she began creating works for children. Her book THE SECRET GARDEN is one of the most popular children's books of all time.
