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.

Format: Paperback
This book contains all of Alcott's fantasy stories and fairy tales, including those in her book Flower Fables. Some of the stories are sweet and have happy endings; others have sad endings. A few of them are a touch preachy. I don't know if children today would really enjoy these stories. Little girls might. The language is, of course, rather old-fashioned and the morals blatant. I think the stories would be of more interest to Alcott scholars or collectors who want to read everything she ever wrote. Still, the stories show some imagination and aren't objectionable in any way.
