Frances Hodgson Burnett

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).
