Waterstones Says

A compelling family drama set in the shadow of the American Civil War, Little Women’s titular sisters continue to influence and inspire a century and a half after Louisa May Alcott created them.

Discover the classic tale behind the hit film and one of the most beloved, comforting, charming stories of all time.

Life in the March household is full of adventures as the four very different March sisters follow their varying paths to adulthood, always maintaining the special bond between them. Sensible Meg, impetuous Jo, shy Beth and artistic Amy each have to confront different challenges as they grow up together and attempt to learn how to be both happy and good.

'Deals with life's big questions - love and death, war and peace, and ambition versus family responsibility - in a way that is inspiring and realistic. Use a hankie as a bookmark - tears are guaranteed' Marie Claire

MEDIA REVIEWS
I try to get every girly girl to read this one because those four sisters are so real. Everybody's favourite is Jo, the tomboy who wants to be a writer -- Jacqueline Wilson
The resounding message of Little Women is that no one stays the same for ever, least of all the reader...the power of Little Women lies absolutely in its girlish innocence * The Times *
Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is as much a part of every girl's childhood as her first pair of ballet shoes and the Brothers Grimm * Mail on Sunday *
Spiritually rich and full of humour * Independent on Sunday *
Deals with life's big questions - love and death, war and peace, and ambition versus family responsibility - in a way that is inspiring and realistic. Use a hankie as a bookmark - tears are guaranteed * Marie Claire *
