Little Men – Louisa May Alcott


little_men3

The beloved sequel to Little Women, this classic continues the story of Jo March, who goes on to get married and inherit an estate with which she creates an experimental school for boys.  At Plumfield, the boys receive education, love, and a home.

Three new people come to Plumfield and stir everyone up.  Nat likes to lie, Dan likes to beat people up, and Nan is full of energy that cannot be controlled. Eventually Jo tames them. Through some different methods, Jo and the Professor manage to create one large family at Plumfield.

Filled with troublesome boys, mischief, laughter, and hijinks, Little Men is a good sequel to Little Women.

This book was another good read. Not quite as magical as Little Women, but it continues the story of Jo, who was my favorite character, and I grew to love the boys and other new characters in this story.  Try it, and if you read Little Women, you must continue with this book!    – Jessica, Teen Librarian
