Louisa

The Life of Louisa May Alcott

Yona Zeldis McDonough; illustrations by Bethanne Andersen

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

When Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women was published in 1868 it was an instant success. Louisa drew on her experiences in writing the novel, but there’s a lot more to her rags-to-riches story. Louisa came from a family that was poor but freethinking, and she started teaching when she was only seventeen years old. But writing was her passion. This informative biography captures the life of a compassionate woman who left an indelible mark on literature for all ages.
