By Francesca Rossi (Illustrator), Louisa May Alcott (Author)
From the time it was written back in 1868, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has enchanted young readers, who identify with the realistic and lively personalities of the four March sisters. Growing up as the Civil War rages, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy face the challenges and difficulties of life—and, sometimes, each other. Francesca Rossi’s wonderful illustrations are perfect for the contemporary audience.
