Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 - March 6, 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard. With her pen name Louisa wrote novels for young adults in juvenile hall.

    Sweet little stories

    Just the sort of little morality tales you would expect from Louisa May Alcott. Sweet, but a bit treacly for modern tastes. Some typos and errors in the digital copy, but usually legible.

    Great Book...Ebook, not so much.

    This ebook has an endless amount of typo errors, which makes it extremely difficult to read. However, I highly recommend all works by Louisa May Alcott.

    CJ Garland for Girls by Louisa May Alcott

    Although this is by a good author, it is a pretty boring book. This is a collection of short stories about many random girls. So far I have liked every book by Alcott except for this book. I give it 2 stars for the actual book but it gets an extra star brcause of the author.
