Description

Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there's tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures - including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.

About Louisa Alcott

Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to supplement the family income and had many short stories published in magazines and newspapers. She was reluctant to write a children's book but then realized that in herself and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest American to become a classic. Orla Kiely is an Irish London-based designer famous for her colourful bags and accessories.

She worked and consulted for high profile companies including Esprit, M&S and Habitat and Debenhams before launching her own business in 1997. Today she has flagship stores in London, Hong Kong, Japan and exports to the USA. For more about Orla Kiely visit www.orlakiely.com
