Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was an English- American playwright and author. She was best known for her children's stories, in particular The Secret Garden (1911) and Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886). Her first story was published in Godey's Lady's Book in 1868. Her main writing talent was combining realistic detail of workingclass life with a romantic plot. Her first novel was published in 1877; That Lass o' Lowrie's was a story of Lancashire life. After moving to Washington, D.C., Burnett wrote the novels Haworth's (1879), Louisiana (1880), A Fair Barbarian (1881), and Through One Administration (1883), as well as a play, Esmeralda (1881), written with William Gillette. Her later works include Sara Crewe, or, What Happened at Miss Minchin's (1888) - later rewritten as A Little Princess (1905); and A Lady of Quality (1896) - considered one of the best of her plays. The Lost Prince was published in 1915, and The Head of the House of Coombe was published in Canada in 1922. During World War I, Burnett put her beliefs about what happens after death into writing with her novella The White People (1917).

    Sweet Endearing Story

    This edition of Racketty Packetty House is by far my favorite. I ordered a Dover Thrift edition which arrived without any illustrations, of course. My daugther, who is 8 years old loved this edition with the pictures. The illustrator also illustrated Cynthia Rylant's Cobblestone Cousins series among other books.

    As for the story, The Racketty Packetty House is the story of a family of dolls in a run down dollhouse. They have such fun with one another. A new house--a snobby house arrives as a gift for the little girl of the story. This book is the story of these two houses and a few fairies who help the Racketty Packetty house stave off destruction.

    This book is one of a series of 4 books that Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote. I never read it as a child, but have thoroughly enjoyed reading it along with my girls (6 and 8).
