Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in Manchester in 1849. She had a very poor upbringing and used to escape from the horror of her surroundings by writing stories. In 1865 her family emigrated to the USA, where she married and became the successful author of many children's books including Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.
