Little Men is the delightful unofficial sequel to Louisa May Alcott's LITTLE WOMEN, reprising the much-cherished characters of the March family and friends, as well as some unforgettable new ones.
Jo March is now Jo Bhaer and, together with her husband Friedrich and the inheritance of an estate from Aunt March, opens Plumfield Estate, an unconventional school based on individuality and diversity. Jo's own boys, a number of rescued orphans, and her nieces, are encouraged to be kind, helpful, and self-sufficient, tending their own gardens and running their own businesses. Fun and learning go hand in hand, and pillow fights are permitted on Saturdays. Personal relationships are key to the school, as well as to the novel, and the lovable characters get up to plenty of scrapes and adventures, as all children do, but in the end, even the troublesome among them find redemption in the love and support of the extended March family.
