Look at that cover. I mean look at it. The publishers of the 1930’s really knew how to hook a kid in, didn’t they?
The cover aside, I was very pleased with this one. It wasn’t the first biography of Louisa I’d read. I’m a big fan of her and her sometimes wise, occasionally very foolish, but always lovable father. It is one of the better Louisa Alcott biographies. It manages to not weigh the reader down with too many details, while at the same time remaining incredibly thorough. Sadly, while I liked it very much, I don’t have a whole lot to say about it, so I’ll keep this review short.
I’m giving it four out of five Newbery Pies (2nd 4 pie book in a row!)
