Little Lord Fauntleroy

I remember when I was little I went to the Library and someone read part of this book to me.

Instantly I fell madly and most shallowly in puppy love with little Fauntleroy, also known as Cedric.

Every other girl fawned over the Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, but no, I was most ardently infatuated with a fictional boy from the 18th century.

Not surprising huh?

I mean, who wouldn't love a rich ,gentlemanly, sweet American/English boy?

Alas, whenever the little lord is referenced today it is used to describe a spoiled rich kid, of which I can assure you Fauntleroy was not.

Wanna know more?
