Character description

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was famous for her children's stories, which are still very popular today. Many of them have repeatedly been made into films. Her most famous creation may be Little Lord Fauntleroy, whose name became a byword for sentimental, well-dressed children.
