Product description

The beloved story of the March girls is a classic American novel, telling the story of four sisters: independent, tomboyish Jo; delicate, loving Beth; pretty, kind Meg; and precocious, beautiful Amy, the baby of the family. The charming story of these four "little women" and their wise and patient mother Marmee enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War New England was an instant success when first published in 1868 and has been adored for generations. Bringing together traditional handicraft with cutting-edge book design, the "Penguin Threads" series has already created a huge buzz among the art and book-collecting communities. This latest set features cover art by painter and illustrator Rachell Sumpter, who brings a unique, whimsical sensibility to the Threads. With vivid colours and ambitiously intricate details, these additions to our innovative series commissioned by award-winning creative director Paul Buckley are rich works of art to be cherished and shared.

Author information

Louisa May Alcott was born in Pennsylvania, in 1832, the second of four daughters. After a period of serving as an army nurse, she published Hospital Sketches in 1863, followed by Gothic Romances and lurid thrillers. In 1868-9, she published Little Women, which proved so popular that it was followed by two sequels and several other novels. She died in 1888.

Review quote

It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls . . . Girls come to it on their own." -Jane Smiley, from the Introduction Praise for the Penguin Threads series: "In a time of downloads, E-Ink and Kindles, it is nice to see that Penguin still strives to produce beautifully designed physical books. . . . Miss Tamaki is one talented artist and her collaboration with Penguin is a match made in book heaven." --PhillyBurbs.com "When it comes to covers, Penguin is hard to beat. But somehow, the publisher just keeps upping the ante." --Booklicious (bookliciousblog.com) "Breathtaking . . . Major kudos to publisher Penguin Books for such a beautifully art-directed and realized series of covers. . . . Modern, sweet, beautiful. Inspired." --Sublimestitching.com
