Overview

Jo March, the tomboy heroine of Little Women, has grown up! She returns in this beloved sequel as a young woman with a family of her own. Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer, open their hearts (and their home) to educate and care for a handful of rowdy yet well-meaning youngsters.

Plumfield, the school where the boys learn "how to help themselves and be useful men," has a spirited student body that includes -- in addition to the Bhaers' two sons -- Nat, an orphaned street musician, cold and frightened when he first appears at the Bhaers' door; business-minded Tommy; Dan, a "wild boy" eventually tamed by love and kindness; and other endearing little mischief-makers.

Outside the classroom, the boys rush headlong from one prank to another -- from playing matador with the family cow to nearly setting the school afire with a smoldering cigar stub. But in the end, they prove to have a positive effect on the lives of the entire Bhaer family.

With tales ranging from tearful to cheerful, this heartwarming unabridged classic promises young readers an exciting and fun-filled visit to nineteenth-century America.

Follows the adventures of Jo March and her husband Professor Bhaer as they try to make their school for boys a happy, comfortable, and stimulating place.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Like the semi-autobiographical heroine of Little Women , Alcott supported herself and her family by writing potboilers. This volume is the fifth of a series to reprint the romantic thrillers she wrote anonymously; the nine tales collected here originally appeared in Frank Leslie's Lady's Magazine between 1868 and 1870, before the success of Little Women made such efforts unnecessary. They demonstrate a rich imagination that could be harnessed to popular fiction. Designed to fit the magazine's format and to please the tastes of women readers, these romantic stories foreshadowed what was to come in the literary marketplace. Alcott's darkly handsome men and ravishingly beautiful women move through plots involving sex, illicit drugs, the betrayal of trust and the lavish life of the wealthy. Virtue always wins at least a moral victory, but not before rousing melodramas have revealed the sizzling passions surging under the laces and jewels worn by Alcott's characters. While the collection is of particular interest to scholars, who will appreciate the informative introduction and bibliography, it will also appeal to anyone entranced by Alcott's novels.

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Cheerful, resourceful Ben Brown, a 12 year old circus performer and his friendly, clever dog, Sancho, have run away from an abusive environment in search of his father who had mysteriously disappeared months before. The two travelers are befriended by two lively sisters, Bab and Betty Moss, as well as their mother and two wealthy neighbors. Throughout the rest of the novel we follow Ben's adjustments to work, school and life outside the circus. The book should appeal to Louisa May Alcott fans and readers who enjoy nostalgic, old-fashioned stories. 1877,
Library Journal
Gathering four of Alcott's early sensation stories ("Pauline's Passion and Punishment," "V.V.," "Behind a Mask," and "Taming a Tatar") from a previous Alcott collection (Louisa May Alcott Unmasked: Collected Thrillers, LJ 4/15/95), rare book collector and Alcott scholar Stern illustrates the ways in which women's struggle for sexual power form the thread that knits together Alcott's fiction. Each of the stories records the degree to which Alcott's female protagonists succeed or fail to break away from male domination to fashion their own self-identities. In "Pauline's Passion and Punishment," for example, Pauline succeeds in defeating her male opponent only to become trapped in a terrifying new relationship with him. Since the stories in this volume are readily available in other collections, only libraries wanting to own every edition of Alcott's stories will want to purchase it.Henry L. Carrigan Jr., Westerville P.L., Ohio
Stephen King
"A long fatal love chase is not the best of Alcott's sensation stories: that is probably behind the mask." -- The New York Times Book Review
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—Louisa May Alcott's charming, although now somewhat dated, companion piece to the perennially popular Little Women highlights the life of the wildest of the March sisters, Jo, now married to "her professor," and presiding as the harried but happy mistress over the Plumfield Estate School—home to a small group of needy boys, relatives, and sons whose mischievous antics and emotional upheavals provide ample opportunities for Alcott to share her personal philosophy about learning and life. Filled with pathos and humor as well as insights into the mysterious world of childhood, Little Men entertains and educates in equal measure. Justine Eyre's narration slowly lulls listeners back in time to a far gentler and kinder world in which all children are cherished and nurtured to become their very best selves, providing a perfect selection for family listening pleasure. Also included is a PDF ebook featuring autiomatic startup, a table of contents, and keyword search.—Cindy Lombardo, Cleveland Public Library, OH

    I Also Recommend:

    Little Men for Little Men and Little Women

    The "Classic Starts" books, of which *Little Men* is a part, are excellent; they do high-quality redactions of classic novels that makes these stories accessible to your emergent reader. The chapters are shortened and difficult vocabulary changed, but the spirit here of Louisa Mae Alcott's writing remains. Most importantly, so does the story itself, which is absorbing my son. If you know *Little Women,* this is the sequel, when Jo is grown up and running Plumfield as a girl's school. I'm an English professor and can't recommend the "Classic Start" series enough--the stories have an integrity about them that one just doesn't find in the series-fiction for this age group. I also appreciate that the "Classic Starts" series doesn't pitch or market these classic works to a specific gender. *Little Men* is an excellent story to begin with, made better by the clever editing of the series!

    A Delightful, Diverting Book!

    Little Men is my favorite of Louisa May Alcott's books. I love it's prequel, Little Women. However, Little Men is more frought with fun, mischievous events, and childlike pleasures. It's a great book to read if you want something to divert you and get your mind off of the stress in your life for at time! Since I work with children, I appreicated the fun of the book, and the fact that the main characters were almost all under the age of fifteen!

    A Great Book!!!!

    <i>Little Men</i> is a great book. What I like most about it is that the book is so <i>detailed</i>. For the chapter <i>Crops</i>, it tells you exactly what crops let's say Tommy, or Nan; Daisy, Demi; etc. grew. A #1 book for people who like Little Women. Definetly an A+.

    okay,i am so upset!

    although this is a really good book, i am really disapointed with the quality of the text. i am really upset that i have to pay for decent quality. there are so many typos that you have to guess what the basically everything says. seriously, barnes and noble, i am mad at myself for even buying a nook. when i get stuff for free it is just samples or books that were written before the 1900s that are really good books written by amazing authors but sadly i cant read them because they are filled with typos. i would rather read a REAL book ANY day. i know what i am talking about because i am a real author. so, if you have the sense to read reviews before you actually buy books, please DO NOT buy this book or any others written by this author!

    Charming

    Little Men is a sweet chapter book that provides an escape. There is no flowing storyline, it's a book filled with stories about almost each character. It will make happy, broaden the imagination and as well teach any youngster who reads it, some lessons for life. As a teenager I found this book a great read- I recommend this to everyone...

    Good Read

    It's a pretty good book- in my opnion not as well written as Little Woman/Good Wives and Jo's Boys, but still really great, (maybe I'm just romantic) This is a good book to read if you want to see how Jo, Meg, and Amy turn out.

    Good weekend read

    This is a cool book. I agree that you should read little women first because it will help you understand a couple more things. The little girl Daisy is adorable.
