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.
