how many of us have got our wishes." This is the much-loved story
of the four March sisters. Meg is the eldest and is about to fall
in love. Then there's tomboy Jo, who wants to be a writer. Kind
Beth who always puts other people before herself, and finally
there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Although times are
difficult and their father is away at war, they never forget their
sense of fun. Growing up is not always easy, but it is very
rewarding. A series of well-known classic stories by world-famous
authors that have been chosen, and adapted, to appeal to young
teenagers. Careful selection of stories with suitable content and
language level has allowed the flavour of the originals to remain.
