Alcott's unforgettable tale, with eye-catching illustrations by Rebecca Green.
‘“Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.’ This famous opening line sets the scene for the beloved coming-of-age story of four sisters growing up in a quiet New England town. Their father is away serving as a chaplain in the Civil War and money is scarce, but the girls invent their own amusements: they act plays, write stories and – most importantly – learn to lead good and financially independent lives.
