Frank R. Stockton Net Worth is
American well-known novelist and short-story author of mainly funny fiction, most widely known as the writer from the title story of the collection called THE GIRL, or the Tiger? (1884). Stockton added to and was in the personnel of Hearth and House and in 1873 became helper editor from the St. Nicholas Mag. His first fiction was created for kids. Among his many popular children’s tales were those gathered in Ting-a-Ling Stories (1870) as well as the Floating Prince, and Various other Fairy Stories (1881). His adult book Rudder Grange (1879), originally serialized in Scribner’s Once a month, recounted the whimsically brilliant and amusing ventures of a family group living on the canal fishing boat. Its success prompted two sequels, Rudder Grangers Overseas (1891) and Pomona’s Moves (1894). The Casting Apart of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshine (1886) told of two middle-aged females on a ocean voyage to Japan who become castaways on the deserted isle. A sequel made an appearance in 1888 as The Dusantes. Though he continuing to create some juvenile fiction, Stockton had written mainly for adults after 1887. He also had written a reserve of background, Buccaneers and Pirates of Our Coastline (1898).
