About the Author
Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote novels and plays for both children and adults. She is best known for her children’s novels, mainly Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), The Secret Garden (1911), and Sara Crewe (1888), the last of which became A Little Princess when Burnett expanded the story for American audiences. The Secret Garden remains one of the most cherished children’s books of all time.
British children’s writer Lewis Carroll was born under the name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson but it was under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll that he wrote his bestselling novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel Through the Looking Glass (1872). Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is considered one of the first nondidactic stories for children and remains popular today with both children and adults.
In 1908, British children’s author Kenneth Grahame brought readers The Wind in the Willows, a novel now considered a children’s classic. It was to his son that Grahame first told the stories of Mr. Toad, Mole, and Rat, which later became The Wind in the Willows. Grahame is regarded as an author with a remarkable understanding of childhood, which imbues his works with lasting appeal.
British author Anna Sewell published only one novel in her lifetime, yet it remains one of the most beloved stories of all time. Black Beauty: The Autobiography of a Horse was published in 1877, the first full-length fictional animal autobiography told from the first person point of view.
