About the Author

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

More About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was both an abolitionist and a feminist. She is best known for Little Women (1868), a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Alcott, unlike Jo, never married: "... because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man." She was an advocate of women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts.

Being named for one of the Little Woman, I grew up in a household where Louisa May was practically a relative. A Garland for Girls is one of her better books for girls. It is a quick read and a bit pedantic at points, but the stories are uplifting and enjoyable.

I read this book on Kindle and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the last book published by Alcott before her untimely death, written while she was ill. The stories are very sweet and sentimental and old-fashioned and moralizing and altogether delightful. Consequently, I wanted a hard copy to give to my daughter, for her to read now and someday to share with her daughter (now two years old).

This one looked like a good deal, but it is not. Whoever designed it overlooked the cast-iron publishing convention that odd pages are always recto (right-hand) pages and even pages always verso (left-hand). Almost every page in this book is on the wrong side, beginning with the title page (on the left), up to the point where page 115 is entirely omitted, which at least gets the book back on track--up to the point where page 128 is missing.

Since it is a facsimile, one can't complain too much about the image quality (some pages are just barely legible), but I think it is deceptive to label it "Digitally Remastered," and the omission of (at least) two pages makes it much less useful. I won't be ordering any more "Forgotten Books" editions.

This book was a sweet and pleasing collection of the author's tales. Louisa May Alcott's writing is just as entertaining, simple, and good today as it was when first published. The virtues and faults of her characters are true and true to life, and the virtues she highlights are just as useful today as they were then. I also enjoy her recurring theme of the simplest, smallest kindness being able to do tremendous good. We often forget the power of the small, and it would do many people good to be reminded of it. Thumbs-up all the way through!

I love this book - all of the stories of the girls and what they did to make a difference are so inspiring, both to me and to my girls.

This is Alcott's final book, a collection of eight short stories. There are some fine moments in it that recall the effervescence of her finest work, but there is also the over-sentimentality that can be jarring to modern readers.
