First published in 1879, this book contains volume V 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. The stories include: “Jimmy’s Cruise in the Pinafore”, “Two Little Travellers”, “A Jolly Fourth”, “Seven Black Cats”, “Rosa’s Tale”, “Lunch”, “A Bright Idea”, “How they Camped Out”, “My Little School-Girl”, “What a Shovel Did”, “Clams”, “Kitty’s Cattle Show”, and “What Becomes of the Pins”. This charming collection of classic children’s literature is perfect for young minds and would make for ideal bedtime reading material. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
