Over de Auteur

Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote for children and adults, publishing both plays and novels. She was born in Manchester, England, on November 24, 1849. Her father, who owned a furniture store, died when she was only four years old. Her mother struggled to keep the family business running while trying toon meer to raise five children. Finally, because of the failing Manchester economy, the family sold the store and immigrated to the United States. In 1865 they settled just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee. Hoping to offset her family's continuing financial troubles, Burnett began to submit her stories to women's magazines. She was immediately successful. In the late 1860s her stories were published in nearly every popular American magazine. Burnett helped to support her family with income from the sale of her stories, even saving enough to finance a trip back to England, where she stayed for over a year. In 1879, Burnett published her first stories for children; two of her most popular are A Little Princess and The Secret Garden. In contrast to an extremely successful career, Burnett's personal life held many challenges. Her son Lionel was diagnosed with tuberculosis at age 15, from which he never recovered. His death inspired several stories about dead or dying children. Burnett lived her later years on Long Island, New York. She died in 1924. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

Algemene kennis



A Little Princess Discussion in Hogwarts Express (maart 2008)


2.5 stars. After watching "The Making of a Lady" on PBS I was interested in the book it was based on, especially when I heard the author's name. I preferred the film, which of course was more suited to a contemporary audience. Part 1 was quite interesting, but Part 2 got more & more soap-opera-ish as the end neared.

Absolutely delightful. I had fond memories of it from childhood, so I picked up the Kindle edition. There is a delightful narrative that kept me hooked and I could hardly wait to finish it.

A fantastic little book, the kind that makes you feel glad to read literature. It's a tale of change, of healing, of growing and finding happiness in the most simple way. In our modern world of depression and anxiety, classics like this will never lose their importance.
