    A delightful collection of tales from the author of Little Women. Some of them may seem quite dated in their outlook now, but I suspect the views on women in particular were quite advanced for the time.

    In this collection of short stories by the author of "Little Women," a grandmother tells moral tales to her visiting grandchildren when a storm keeps them indoors. The stories have a pronounced alternating gender focus, between domestic and "boys" adventures, each with a pointed moral lesson mixed in with Alcott's amusing style.
