Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women

Laura Wood

A beautifully accessible version of a classic story retold by Laura Wood. Little Women is a perennial favourite but, as with many classics, it can be a daunting read for many people. This retelling is concise whilst keeping the key themes and scenes, very much like a movie! This would be ideal for anyone wanting something quick and comforting to read, for younger readers discovering classics for the first time or even for a class read. As ever with Barrington Stoke, the text is very clear and the story is easy to read.
