Little Lord Fauntleroy
gebundene Ausgabeab 5,99€
An unexpected inheritance changes the life of a poor eight-year-old living in New York. Cedric finds that he is now Lord Fauntleroy with a castle in England, and leaves an impoverished American city life for a new existence as an English aristocrat. It is not quite the dream scenario it first appears, as he has to cope with a crusty old grandfather and expectations from a different social circle. But gradually both find they can learn from each other. A runaway success from its first publication in 1885, Little Lord Fauntleroy not only set a fashion with black velvet suit and lace collar, but became a children's classic on both sides of the Atlantic.
