Description of this Book

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is a timeless American classic. Marmee has her hands full. Father's away in the Civil War and their daughters are growing up so fast. Meg is tenderhearted and romantic. Boisterous Jo-the tomboy-is always getting into adventures. Shy little Beth is the stay-at-home sister, and golden-haired Amy longs to be a famous artist. Four very different little women who love each other dearly. Like all sisters, they sometimes disagree. Still, when trouble comes to the March family, they face it bravely together. From the award winning team that brought you The Chronicles of Narnia, these classic stories feature performances by a full cast of actors, including Gemma Jones from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and many others. Motion-picture quality sound design.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A delightful novel of simplicity and family. It is a superb novel for adults to share with their children and a delightful retreat for adults who want to leave the 21st century for a few minutes or hours. -- Suite 101.com C. M. H bert reads the story with the gentle affection and conviction one imagines in Jo March as she reads to her elderly aunt. Her characterizations receive a light touch, distinguishing each sister from the others without actually performing. H bert allows her amusement and sadness to show at appropriate moments but maintains an overall detachment from the text that suits its soft formality to perfection. -- AudioFile This novel for girls is about 150 years old and is still charming to a young girl's heart. -- Jandy's Reading Room
