The two American classics here together in one volume, 'Little Men' and 'Jo's Boys', are worthy sequels to 'Little Women', one of the best-loved children's stories of all time, and its continuation, Good Wives. In 'Little Men', Louisa May Alcott takes up the story of the everyday dramas and exploits of the naughty but easy-going boys at Plumfield, now a boarding-school run by Professor Bhaer and his lovable madcap wife Jo, the most fiery and free-spirited of the four March sisters. 'Jo's Boys' revisits the one-time members of that 'wilderness of boys' ten years later when they are making their ways in the world with varying degrees of triumph and disaster. AUTHOR: Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832-March 6, 1888) was an American novelist. She is best known for the novel 'Little Women', published in 1868. This novel is loosely based on her childhood experiences with her three sisters.
