"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship"

Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there's tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters.

Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures - including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is one of the twenty wonderful classic stories reissued in Puffin Classics in March 2015.

Born in Philadelphia in 1832, Louisa May Alcott remains one of the world's best-loved and most enduringly popular American authors. Best-known for Little Women and its sequels, Alcott was a noted feminist, abolitionist and her novels are still celebrated for their championing of independent thought and women's liberation.

“A classic classic”

This book is my favourite classic. As a child it was the only one I could get into and now I’ve read it at least twenty times. It is rather similar to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Susan Coolidge’s What Katy... More
