This Impression 1969
Considered the unofficial sequel to Little Women, Little Men is about a now adult and married Jo March and the boy's school she runs with her husband, Professor Bhaer. Plumfield is not a traditional school of the time—some of children run their own little businesses. They are also allowed to have pets and gardens, and there's even a scheduled pillow fight time. The story begins with the arrival of new student Nat Blake, and it is from his perspective that we see the other characters. Mischief, friendship, and learning abound in Plumfield as the boys are molded into little men.
