American novelist Louisa May Alcott is best known for her classic coming-of-age novel Little Women, and its sequels Little Men and Jo s Boys.
"Lulu's Library" is a three-volume set of short stories that were originally told to Alcott's young niece as bedtime stories; as such, they are written at a slightly younger reading level than the author's more familiar children's novels. The tales fall into three categories: traditional fairy stories (of the "little beings living down at the end of the garden" type), stories in which the characters have magical adventures, and more realistic stories set firmly in the real world.
