Charlotte Maria Tucker (1821-1893) was an English author. She wrote under the pseudonym A. L.O. E. (a Lady of England). From 1852 till her death she wrote many stories for children, most of them allegories with an obvious moral, and devoted the proceeds to charity. In 1875 she left England for India to engage in missionary work. Her works include: The Rambles of a Rat (1854), Old Friends With New Faces (1858), Idols in the Heart (1859), The Crown of Success (1864), The Story of a Needle (1868) and The Robbers’ Cave: A Tale of Italy (1900).
