What is the secret that lies behind the great, long-lasting success of a novel set in the United States during the Civil War and written way back in 1868 by Louisa May Alcott? It is probably the fresh, realistic ,and lively personality of the protagonists of the story, the four March sisters (Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy)—whom readers cannot help identifying with—who while growing up face the challenges and difficulties of life. The story of these four sisters, who are so different from one another and so realistic, with typical youthful shortcomings and dreams, is presented in this book in an original and modern way, thanks to the wonderful drawings by Francesca Rossi, an artist who knows how to render the full sense of the books she illustrates.
