A literary landmark—the original, suppressed draft of the classic novel!
Little Women is a timeless classic. But Louisa May Alcott’s first draft—before her editor sunk his teeth into it—was even better. Now the original text has at last been exhumed. In this uncensored version, the March girls learn some biting lessons, transforming from wild girls into little women—just as their friends and neighbors transform into vicious, bloodthirsty werewolves!
Here are tomboy Jo, quiet Beth, ladylike Amy, and good-hearted Meg, plus lovable neighbor Laurie Laurence, now doomed to prowl the night on all fours, maiming and devouring the locals. As the Civil War rages, the girls learn the value of being kind, the merits of patience and grace, and the benefits of knowing a werewolf who can disembowel your teacher.
By turns heartwarming and blood-curdling, this rejuvenated classic will be cherished and treasured by those who love a lesson in virtue almost as much as they enjoy a good old-fashioned dismemberment.
Includes the original letter from Alcott’s editor, telling her not to even think about it!

Little Women and Werewolves
"Christmas night will have a full moon, so on top ofno presents, we can't go out," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug. "It'sfortunate we thought to have a Christmas play, so we could invite friends tostay overnight, or it would have been completely ruined."
"It's so dreadful to be poor! And it's a horror tohave no father or brothers about to do heavy chores and protect us from thewerewolves," sighed Meg, rubbing at a spot on her old dress with herthumb.
"Yes, I don't think it's fair for some girls to havelots of pretty things and other girls nothing at all," declared littleAmy, with an injured sniff.
"We've got Mother, and each other, anyhow,"said Beth contentedly from her corner. "And we can protect ourselves.Besides, Father is as sad as we that he cannot be here with us. And what doesit matter that some girls have lovely clothes when they, just like us, muststay inside during a full moon? Remember that many of them don't even havesisters, so they must shiver all alone in their pretty boots as they listen tothe werewolves howl."
Elizabeth, or Beth, as everyone called her, was a rosy, smooth-haired,bright-eyed girl of thirteen who spoke in a soft voice, had a shy manner, atimid voice, and a peaceful expression. Her father called her just that,"Little Tranquility," since she kept herself happy and safe, beyondthe boundaries where harsh reality could invade, within her own little world.
The four young faces on which the firelight shonebrightened at the cheerful words but darkened again when Jo said sadly:"No matter where he wants to be, the fact is we will have no father herefor Christmas, and we shall not have him as long...
