Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic rags to riches story that launched her career and brought her books their enduring popularity now has a gorgeously reimagined cover. Seven-year-old Cedric Errol lives with his mother in New York City and has a decidedly negative view of the British aristocracy. Little does he know, he is a part of that group. When a lawyer arrives at their home, Cedric learns that due to the death of his uncle, he is now the heir to the Earl of Dorincourt and is to move to England to live with his grandfather. Gaining sudden wealth and moving into a castle might be exciting, but it also means living apart from his mother, whom his grandfather never approved of. And the earl is notorious for being a stingy and heartless leader. Before long, Cedric’s generous nature and open heart begin to change the whole earldom for the better. But his grandfather’s character isn’t the only challenge he’ll face, and soon the new life Cedric has built in England is thrown into jeopardy. Beloved since its original publication in the 1880s when it was an immediate hit that inspired popular fashion trends, Cedric’s story has remained one of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most enduring classics.

Englisch-deutsche Parallelübersetzung auf jeweils gegenberliegenden Seiten. "Nachdem sein Vater wegen einer nicht standesgemäßen Ehe von seinem adligen Großvater verstoßen worden und wenige Jahre darauf verstorben ist, wächst der kleine Cedric Errol als armer Halbwaise in Amerika auf. Seine Kindheit ist trotz aller Armut unbeschwert - bis eines Tages ein Anwalt im Auftrag seines Großvaters anreist, um Cedric als dessen einzigen Erben und zukünftigen Inhaber seines Titels und seines Vermögens zu sich nach England zu holen. Dort angekommen, will sein aufbrausender selbstsüchtiger Großvater, der Earl of Dorincourt, den neuen "Lord Fauntleroy" lehren, sich wie ein Aristokrat zu verhalten, doch das Zusammensein mit dem unverdorbenen und liebevollen Cedric lehrt ihn im Gegenzug viel mehr: Nach und nach schleichen sich Mitgefühl und Liebe in das versteinerte Herz des alten Mannes ..."

"Little Lord Fauntleroy" – In a shabby New York City side street in the mid-1880s, young Cedric Errol lives with his mother in genteel poverty after the death of his father, Captain Cedric Errol. One day, they are visited by an English lawyer with a message from Cedric's grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, an unruly millionaire who despises the United States. With the deaths of his father's elder brothers, Cedric has now inherited the title Lord Fauntleroy and is the heir to the earldom and a vast estate. Cedric's grandfather takes him to live in England and be educated as an English aristocrat. "How Fauntleroy Occurred, and a Very Real Little Boy Became an Ideal One" is a story written by Frances Burnett in which she compared her famous creation Little Lord Fauntleroy and her youngest son Vivian. In many ways Vivian served as an inspiration for creating the fictional character Cedric Errol. Later in life he wanted to escape from those comparisons and separates himself from the fictional characters, but it was hard to shake them off.
