About the Author
Frances Hodgson Burnett was a born storyteller. Even as a young child, her greatest pleasure was in making up stories and acting them out, using her dolls as characters. She wrote over forty books, including the classic A Little Princess, also illustrated by Tasha Tudor.
Frances Hodgson Burnett is the award-winning author of such children s classics as The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy, and A Little Princess. Born in Manchester, England in 1849, Burnett immigrated with her family to Knoxville, Tennessee, at the age of sixteen, and there began her career writing stories for magazines, eventually publishing her first novel, That Lass o Lowries, in 1877. The publication of Little Lord Fauntleroy in 1886 cemented her popularity as a children s author, although she continued to write adult fiction as well.
