Description

A literary landmark--the original, suppressed draft of the classic novel! Little Women is a timeless classic. But Louisa May Alcott's first draft--before her editor sunk his teeth into it--was even better. Now the original text has at last been exhumed. In this uncensored version, the March girls learn some biting lessons, transforming from wild girls into little women--just as their friends and neighbors transform into vicious, bloodthirsty werewolves! Here are tomboy Jo, quiet Beth, ladylike Amy, and good-hearted Meg, plus lovable neighbor Laurie Laurence, now doomed to prowl the night on all fours, maiming and devouring the locals. As the Civil War rages, the girls learn the value of being kind, the merits of patience and grace, and the benefits of knowing a werewolf who can disembowel your teacher. By turns heartwarming and blood-curdling, this rejuvenated classic will be cherished and treasured by those who love a lesson in virtue almost as much as they enjoy a good old-fashioned dismemberment. Includes the original letter from Alcott's editor, telling her not to even think about it!show more
