Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, read by Anna Koval.
Come laugh and cry with the March family.
Meg - the sweet-tempered one. Jo - the smart one. Beth - the shy one. Amy - the sassy one.
Together they're the March sisters. Their father is away at war and times are difficult, but the bond between the sisters is strong.
The family may not have much money, but that doesn't stop them from creating their own fun and forming a secret society.
Through sisterly squabbles, happy times and sad, their four lives follow very different paths, and they discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do...
