‘Little Women’ is recognised as one of the best-loved classic children’s stories of all time. Originally written as a ‘girls’ story’, its appeal transcends the boundaries of time and age, making it as popular with adults as it is with young readers.

‘I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.’

Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth – four “little women” enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War New England The charming story of the March sisters, Little Women has been adored by generations. Readers have rooted for Laurie in his pursuit of Jo’s hand, cried over little Beth’s death, and dreamed of travelling through Europe with old Aunt March and Amy. Future writers have found inspiration in Jo’s devotion to her writing. In this simple, enthralling tale, both parts of which are included here, Louisa May Alcott has created four of American literature’s most beloved women.
