Okay, I’ll admit it. I never read Little Women as a girl, and I’m sure there are quite a few other ladies who might say the same thing. So if you’ve come to realize you missed out on a classic others simply adore, there’s hope for you now. Graphic Classics has compiled the best of Louisa May Alcott’s writings in this volume.
Although Little Women is Louisa May Alcott’s best-known work, most of us are unaware she wrote some other rather unique tales. The Piggy Girl, The Rival Prima Donnas, A Whisper in the Dark, and Lost in a Pyramid may come as quite a surprise to those who expect domestic tranquility in her writing.
These dramatic stories are accompanied by detailed graphic artistry, enhancing the reader’s pleasure. If you already love Louisa May Alcott, you’ll want to include this volume in your collection, putting pictures to the words you enjoy. And if you haven’t read her work, Graphic Classics: Louisa May Alcott gives you the perfect opportunity to become acquainted with this talented author.
