About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 in Germantown, Pennsylvania. She is best known for Little Women (1968), which is loosely based on her own life and proved to be one of the most popular children's books ever written. Three sequels followed: Good Wives (1869), Little Men (1871), and Jo's Boys (1886). Alcott was the daughter of the famous transcendentalist Bronson Alcott and was friend of Emerson and Thoreau. In addition to writing, she worked as a teacher, governess, and Civil War nurse, as well as being an advocate of abolition, women's rights, and temperance. She died in 1888 and is buried in Sleepy Hollow cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts.


"Padmore Publishing's edition of Little Women, contrary to recent ones by other publishers, includes parts 1 and 2 of the original story, which allows the reader to get to know more intimately each character and the changes and challenges the four March sisters experienced in this wonderful coming of age story. Ben Berry's illustrations are beautiful in the book cover as well as in the accompanying merchandise."

"Little Women is an old classic that is simply begging to be re-read. With 700 pages and a story divided into two parts, the weight of this book is a mirror of the weight of the narrative. The four March sisters and their family and friends become part of each reader, given them countless lessons about life through the gentle pages of Louisa May Alcott's masterpiece."

"The relevance today is mesmerizing. Even though some events are dated, the social interactions and the girl's challenges are as relevant today as they were then."
