Biographical Sketch

Frances Hodgson Burnett, novelist and children's writer, was born in England in 1849 and emigrated to the United States in 1865. She was best known for Little Lord Fauntleroy, which first appeared as a serial in the November 1885 issue of St. Nicholas. A year after it first appeared as a serial, Burnett's publishers released Fauntleroy as a novel and it became a huge bestseller. Burnett contributed many other stories to St. Nicholas during her lifetime, including "Sara Crewe" in December 1887, which became the sequel to Fauntleroy and was published as A Little Unfairy Princess.
