Following the death of his fatheran Englishman disinherited for marrying an Americanpoverty-stricken lad Cedric Errol is called upon by his cantankerous grandfather to assume the family name and title. Cedric travels to Dorincourt, where he must transform from a poor city boy into a young man fit for Earldom, and while trying to win the heart of his grandfather he must also stay true to himself.
Like A Little Princess and The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy upholds the goodness of children as a way to solve problems in the adult world.

Velvet Lord Fauntleroy suits and collars were sold in stores, and the magazine St. Nicholas, in which the serialized version of the story was told, was highly anticipated each week a Fauntleroy chapter appeared.
