Since its first publication in 1885, Little Lord Fauntleroy has become a favourite with children. The move from New York to his ancestral castle comes as a shock to both Cedric and his new-found relatives, and while he comes to terms with aristocratic ways, they become more aware of compassion and social justice. The text is read with elegance by Teresa Gallagher, a much-admired Naxos reader, whose own childhood was divided between the US and UK.
“Teresa Gallagher’s gentle, refined voice brings the precocious Cedric into listeners’ hearts with arresting success. Equally well depicted are the pithy sayings of the ancient earl and Cedric’s mother’s bell-like tones. Characters and significant dialogue appear seamlessly, and there are few continuity issues in the abridgement. Narration and script combine to present a merry audiobook.”
