This hard to find book or item is not eligible for returns.
Jo March, the tomboy heroine of Little Women, has grown up She returns in this beloved sequel as a young woman with a family of her own. Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer, open their hearts (and their home) to educate and care for a handful of rowdy yet well-meaning youngsters.
Plumfield, the school where the boys learn "how to help themselves and be useful men," has a spirited student body that includes -- in addition to the Bhaers' two sons -- Nat, an orphaned street musician, cold and frightened when he first appears at the Bhaers' door; business-minded Tommy; Dan, a "wild boy" eventually tamed by love and kindness; and other endearing little mischief-makers.
Outside the classroom, the boys rush headlong from one prank to another -- from playing matador with the family cow to nearly setting the school afire with a smoldering cigar stub. But in the end, they prove to have a positive effect on the lives of the entire Bhaer family. With tales ranging from tearful to cheerful, this heartwarming unabridged classic promises young readers an exciting and fun-filled visit to nineteenth-century America.
