Product Description

Reissued in Puffin Classics with a brand new cover and endnotes for childrenThe complete series is now available in Puffin ClassicsHighly collectible setLittle Women was the earliest American children's novel to become a classic

Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to supplement the family income and had many short stories published in magazines and newspapers. Then, in 1862, during the height of the American Civil War, Louisa went to Georgetown to work as a nurse, but she contracted typhoid. Out of her experiences she wrote Hospital Sketches (1864) which won wide acclaim, followed by an adult novel, Moods.

She was reluctant to write a children's book but then realized that in herself and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest American children's novel to become a classic.

Ten years after the school at Plumfield was founded, Jo's boys - including wanderer Dan, sailor Emil and musician Nat - are grown up and discovering more about the world. But life after childhood can be confusing and frightening, and it is Jo and the warm-hearted March family who can comfort and guide the boys when they need it the most...

The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more..

Also in Puffin Classics: Little Women, Good Wives and Little Men.
