Classic female writers, iconic female characters, created
by some of the best female designers today.
Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there’s
tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth
always puts others first, and finally there’s Amy, the
youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March
sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and
their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun
sweeps everyone up in their adventures – including Laurie,
the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their
happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that
growing up is sometimes very hard to do.
Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in
Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to
supplement the family income and had many short stories
published in magazines and newspapers. She was reluctant
to write a children’s book but then realized that in herself
and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result
was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest
American children’s novel to become a classic.
