A boy from New York City, young Cedric Errol, is whisked off to England to claim his rightful place as Lord Fauntleroy, heir to the vile-tempered, old Earl of Dorincourt. The romantic tale has surprising charm despite its extreme sentimentality. Langbehn's dramatic reading and pleasant voice are quite effective in communicating Burnett's nineteenth-century style to modern day listeners. There are a few lapses in her characterizations and some slight production faults, such as the volume from tape to tape varying significantly, but these are very minor in an overall enjoyable recording for listeners grade 4 to adult.
