Journey into Frances Hodgson Burnett’s enchanting and charming tales in this collection of her beloved classics: Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden. Little Lord Fauntleroy - Cedric Errol is a child living in poverty with his mother in New York City, when all of a sudden, his life is turned upside down. He learns that after the untimely deaths of several distant relatives, he is heir to an enormous estate in England, and has inherited the title of Lord Fauntleroy. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, asks that Cedric come to England and begin managing his estate, but requires that he leave his mother behind. This is a classic rags-to-riches story and has inspired countless television and film adaptations. A Little Princess – Young Sara Crewe has lived a happy life with her father in India, but he decides to send her to a boarding school in London to get her away from the harsh environment. He pays for her to have special treatment, which makes the people around her jealous, and they give her the sarcastic title “Princess.” When Sara’s father passes away, her special treatment is taken away and she is turned into a slave by the headmistress and other students, who harbored resentment for her wealth. Meanwhile, her father’s friend searches for her to rescue her from her mistreatment. Burnett’s signature tragedy and hopefulness shines in this classic children’s novel. The Secret Garden - Mary Lennox is a sad and sickly girl. When she moves to a dark, gloomy manor to live with her uncle, she has no interest in exploring her new home – until she learns that there is a secret, locked garden somewhere on the grounds. When Mary finally finds and unlocks the secret garden, she finds that it is like her: sickly, sad, and in need of love. The Secret Garden is the beautiful story of a young girl learning to care for herself by caring for the world around her.Show more
The dabbawallas of Mumbai deliver box lunches - called tiffins - to white collar workers all over the vast city. They are legendary for their near-perfect service: for every six million lunches sent, only one will fail to reach its intended destination. The Tiffin is about that one time in millions when a box goes astray, changing lives forever. When a note placed in a tiffin is lost, a newborn-Kunal-is separated from his mother. Twelve years later, Kunal lives as a virtual slave under the thumb of his foster father, Seth. With danger and oppression making it impossible to stay where he is, Kunal asks his friend Vinayak, an aging dabbawalla, to help him find his birth mother. Vinayak introduces Kunal to the tiffin carriers, and a plan is hatched. Along the way, Kunal learns what it means to be part of a family. Praise for The Tiffin: 'Melding the fantastically factual with fiction, Narsimhan sheds light on a relatively unknown part of Mumbai life while simultaneously creating a compelling quest that reads like a classic folk tale. Forgive the groan-inducing wordplay, but a novel this original is one in six million.' `~ Quill & QuireShow more
Cedric Errol is a child living in poverty with his mother in New York City, when all of a sudden, his life is turned upside down. He learns that after the untimely deaths of several distant relatives, he is heir to an enormous estate in England, and has inherited the title of Lord Fauntleroy. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, asks that Cedric come to England and begin managing his estate, but requires that he leave his mother behind. Cedric, now going by Lord Fauntleroy, impresses his grandfather with natural charm and intelligence, and his grandfather begins to listen to the wisdom of his grandson. His grandson's kindness and deliberate wish to help those in need is a good influence on the estate. But before long, someone new shows up and claims to be the true heir to the inheritance. It is up to Lord Fauntleroy, his grandfather, and his mother to verify his true identity and ensure that his inheritance is not taken by an imposter. Little Lord Fauntleroy is a classic rags to riches story, and was one of the most popular stories for children when it was published. It has inspired countless film and television adaptations and remains an endearing story for readers of all ages.Show more
