About the author:
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, and began her writing career at an early age, with short stories for newspapers and magazines. What began as a series of stories in the 1860s became the classic American children's novel we know today as Little Women.

The Puffin Classics Hardcover edition has a beautiful purple cover design. The interior of the cover is bright pink and the font size is medium (so it's easy to read). Unfortunately, the quality of the paper is unsatisfactory, since it's the same quality of cheap, grey-beige paper used in mass market paperbacks, unbefitting such a pretty hardcover edition.
I cannot tell you how disappointed I was to finally receive this book and realize that this is not the same book we admired so much!!! While the cover looks the same, this book more likely resembles a thick magazine. Gone are the pictures. The front cover illustration is no more than a cheap photocopy of the original. What is the most disappointing is the font. It is so miniscule - you will break your eyes trying to read this book.
The delivery of this book took a couple of weeks, very strange and unusual for Amazon. Now I am suspecting, that the publisher is just printing those books on demand and does it very cheaply. I am returning this book. Do not judge the book by its cover, but this "book" is not a book I was looking for! This is not even a book! Very sad that the publishers stopped printing classics because people stopped reading and buying them...
The only reason why it's not 5 stars is because the outside covers on two that I ordered arrived damaged - the gold foil was rubbed off parts and one of the spines had a tear. I requested replacements, which Amazon promptly ordered, and the new covers were in great condition.Also, it seems that whoever was in charge of the actual inside-pages quality check did a poor job. Some of the page numbers are almost being cut off the edge of the page (poor placement).
Other than that, the stories are classic and the outside covers are stunning. I definitely don't mind sitting these books on my shelf.
