Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-The perennial fascination with Frances Hodgeson Burnett's classic story has made it a vehicle for a variety of adaptations. This audio presentation by the Saint Charles Players is an unsuccessful attempt to make the story into a radio-style version. The best work is done by the narrator who weaves story text between dialogue that is sometimes flat and sometimes overacted. Sound effects are helpful and the musical interludes pleasant, but overall this offering lacks dramatic intensity. The tapes must be played on a stereo player or part of the story can't be heard. A better choice for listeners who want to listen to the entire story would be the unabridged reading by Flo Gibson for Recorded Books (1987).

About the Author

Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett was born on November 24, 1849 in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, England. Her father died of a stroke when she was two, causing the family to fall on hard times, eventually settling in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1865, just after the Civil War. Frances began writing for magazines to support the family, but her mother died in 1870, and she married Doctor Swan Burnett in 1873, leaving the U. S. for Paris, France. While in France, they had two children, and then returned to live in Washington, D. C., where she wrote “Little Lord Fauntleroy” in 1886. During her time there, she visited Boston and became acquainted with Louisa May Alcott and Mary Mapes Dodge, who pushed her in the direction of children’s literature. Her husband’s medical practice did not do well, and the family relied on Frances’ writing to stay out of debt. As time progressed however, she began to suffer from depression, although she managed to begin writing stage plays as well as books. In 1890, her oldest son died from tuberculosis and she began an affair with an actor named Stephen Townsend. In 1898, Frances divorced Swan and married Townsend in 1900, living in England. As it turned out, the decade-younger Townsend only wanted her for financial support and they divorced in 1902. She did write “A Little Princess” and “The Secret Garden” while there, but returned again to the U. S. in 1907, working as a writer and editor at Children’s Magazine. Burnett died on October 29, 1924, at the age of 74, in Plandome, New York. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an American-English novelist and playwright. She is best known for the three children's novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885–1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, England. After her father died in 1852, the family fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 immigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died, and in 1872 Frances married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor. The Burnetts lived for two years in Paris, where their two sons were born, before returning to the United States to live in Washington, D.C., Burnett then began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowrie's), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.

Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and in the 1890s bought a home there where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1890, which caused a relapse of the depression she had struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898, married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced Townsend in 1902. A few years later she settled in Nassau County, Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery.

In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!
By Belle’s Middle Grade on June 28, 2021
Wow! I loved this so much! I’m really loving children’s classics so far! This was such a heartwarming story! Full of “magic”, imagination, & hope! Sara is just the most amazing little girl ever. She is so unlike other little girls, & I loved every unique thing about her. Her “pretending” really helped her for when things got too hard to bear. It helped her endure all the hardships she had to face. She was good down to the core. Such a fine “little missus”. So many amazing characters! Like Sara & Becky. And some horrible characters like Miss Minchin & Lavinia-ohhh I couldn’t stand them! So awful! Miss Minchin is the worst. The absolute child abuse she does to Sara is horrific. The kindness Sara shows to Becky, & to EVERYONE-even the ones who are horrid to her, is truly remarkable. So many scenes had me emotional, like with the starving girl on the street towards the end, & then everything that happens at the end in general. How you treat people says a lot about you, and everything comes back around to you in time as well. Such an amazing, book hug-able story. So happy I finally read this. Highly recommend. I have a few editions, but I read this beautiful copy I have w/the stunning cover & illustrations by Anna Bond. Beautiful!💜

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad translation? Awful edition
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 2, 2020
It seems this edition has been translated into another language and then back again via Google translate - half of the sentences don't even make sense, e.g. "...she attracted the attention of Miss Minchin, who, feeling extraordinarily move in the intervening time, without delay pounced on her." (See image)
No idea where this has come from but DO NOT BUY THIS! Look for a classic edition instead. Very unhappy with this purchase and would like my money back.
