Written by the author of "Little Women" and "Little Men", this is the story of an orphan who has no choice but to go and live at the "Aunt Hill" with her six aunts and seven boy cousins. For someone who was used to a girl's boarding school, it all seems pretty overwhelming.
Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to supplement the family income and had many short stories published in magazines and newspapers. She was reluctant to write a children's book but then realized that in herself and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest American children's novel to become a classic.
