"A wonderful addition to Alma Junior Classics, beautifully illustrated by Peter Bailey. It contains an extra section for young readers and a glossary. Growing up in a poor New York neighbourhood, Cedric Errol appears to be a normal American boy. However, as he discovers when he meets his grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, he is actually Lord Fauntleroy, and is expected to become an English gentleman. Whisked away from his mother and his friends, Cedric must find a way to convince his grandfather to send him home and show him that there is more to nobility than titles and wealth"--Publisher.
