FROM THE BACK COVER: In a specially adapted version for young readers by Lucia Monfried.
LITTLE WOMEN is the lively and warm story of the March sisters...Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.

The passing years bring more adventures and romance -- the first wedding, a broken heart, a trip to Europe -- and the girls are young women. This book shows vividly the joys of growing up in a loving family.
