Little Women

I have read a book called The Complete Little Women. It has four books called Little Women, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys.

The story is about Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. Their father has gone to war and they have to grow up without him. Then their father comes home and Meg gets married. Beth dies and Amy and Jo get married as well. Jo sets up a school and soon all her children got married. That's the end.

The main characters are Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. Meg is the oldest and is very wise. She is also very pretty. She marries John Brook and has three childen named Demi, Daisy and Josie. Jo is the main character and is a tom boy. She is not very pretty but she is adventurous. She marries Mr Bhaer and has two children - Rob and Freedy. She makes a school for boys and Meg sends Demi and Daisy to it. Beth is the kindest and everybody loves her. She helps poor people and died of a sickness that a poor little baby she tried to help had. Everybody was sad. Amy's youngest and most fashionable. She would be the prettiest if her nose wasn't spoilt (Jo dropped her and it went all wonky). She loves art.

My favourite person is Jo because she is a lot like me. She loves books and is very adventurous. She likes to play with boys. Jo is also Louisa May Alcott's favourite character. She represents her.

I liked these books because they show how boys and girls will behave if they are nice. Their mother tells them how to behave. It also tells us how to behave.

I also like it because it is based on Louisa and her sisters. An example is Beth dying. Louisa's sister also died and everyone was sad.

  1. Hi Bec. I love your review! It reminded me of some books that people write that summarise classic stories in just a few words. Your first paragraph is just like that and it's very hard to do. Very clever! I also think you are like Jo too. Love Grandad
