The classic rags-to-riches story is the tale of a poor boy in America who is unaware he is heir to a great fortune. When he and his mother are brought to England, they are separated by the boy's rich, overbearing grandfather, who in time learns there is much more to life than money.
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924) was born in Manchester, England, but moved to America as a teenager.
Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and was dramatized during Burnett's lifetime. The story lives on today in videos and movies. Though she began writing novels for adults, she gained lasting success writing for children. She is best known for
Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess (1905), and
The Secret Garden (1911).
