Description

'I don't like to doze by the fire. I like adventures, and I'm going to find some.' Little Women tells the brilliant tale of the four March sisters: sensible Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth and artistic Amy. As their father goes off to fight in the Civil War, they must adjust to their recent poverty and begin to navigate the adult world. Through a series of adventures, these sisters make friends, get up to mischief, grapple with their vices and eventually find love. Both heart-warming and heart-wrenching, Little Women is a masterpiece of children's literature and a true American classic. This paperback edition contains the original and unabridged text, perfect for children aged 8+.

Notes

Description
The March sisters -- Beautiful Meg, headstrong Jo, delicate Beth, and spoiled Amy -- live in genteel poverty against the backdrop of the American Civil war, as they face their first Christmas without their beloved father, who is serving as a chaplain in the Union Army. We follow the sisters as they grow from children into women, mothers, and wives and experience all of the trials, tragedy, loss, and love that life encompasses along the way. Generations of readers have found themselves identifying with one or more of the March sisters at varying points in their lives. Alcott's semi-autobiographical novel is filled with vividly realized characters who continue to appeal more than 150 years after the novel's original publication.
