First published in 1878, this book contains volume IV of “Aunt Jo’s Scrap-Bag”, a six-volume collection of classic children’s stories by American author Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888). Alcott was an American short story writer, novelist, and poet most famous for writing the novel “Little Women”, as well as its sequels “Little Men” and “Jo’s Boys”. She grew up in New England and became associated with numerous notable intellectuals of her time, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Henry David Thoreau. Contents include: “Lost in a London Fog”, “The Boys’ Joke, and who got the best of it”, “Roses and Forget-me-nots”, “Old Major”, “What the Girls did”, “Little Neighbors”, “Marjorie’s Three Gifts”, “Patty’s Place”, “The Autobiography of an Omnibus”, “Red Tulips”, and “A Happy Birthday”. This charming collection is perfect for young children and would make for ideal bedtime reading material. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
