Publisher's Synopsis

'The small hopes and plans and pleasures of children should be tenderly respected by grown-up people, and never rudely thwarted or ridiculed'

Continuing the adventures of the March sisters from Little Women, Little Men follows the story of spirited, determined Jo, now married with two sons, and running a school. But this is no conventional school. Its pupils are a band of boisterous orphans, pillow fights are allowed on Saturdays, and each child is respected for who they are - including Nat, a skinny, nervous boy with a talent for the violin.

Showing how families can take many forms, Louisa M. Alcott's beloved novel is a celebration of the magic of childhood.
