(Louisa May Alcott)
The delightful adventures of little heroes and heroines in a very
peculiar school called Plumfield where play, work and studies are given
the same importance. The author lets us glimpse the world in the eyes
of the children awakening our childhood memories; the thrill of knowing
and keeping secrets, the excitement of huckleberrying, the value given
to childish treasure, and the importance of being accepted and love.
But just like any stories the protagonists have their own share of
their little fault which could have led them to a tragic end had it not
been for the guidance of Father Bhaer and Mother Bhaer. The Bhaer?s
believe that love, above all else, helps conquer fears and faults thus
helping the children grow into good and principled citizens, far better
than being famous and wealthy.
