Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868). Her youngest sister May died in 1879 and Louisa took over the care of her niece nicknamed Lulu, who was named after Louisa and hence the name of this 3 book series.

Some of the 33 stories are:
  • A Christmas Dream
  • The Candy Country
  • The Skipping Shoes
  • Cockyloo
  • The Frost King And How The Fairies Conquered Him
  • Lilybell And Thistledown
  • Ripple, The Water Sprite
  • Eva's Visit To Fairyland
  • The Silver Party
  • The Blind Lark
  • Music And Macaroni
  • The Little Red Purse; plus many more.

LOUISA MAY ALCOTT is best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised in New England by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

In her later years Alcott suffered chronic health problems, including vertigo. She and her earliest biographers attributed her illness and death to mercury poisoning. During her American Civil War service, Alcott contracted typhoid fever and was treated with a compound containing mercury. Recent analysis of Alcott's illness suggests that her chronic health problems may have been associated with an autoimmune disease, not mercury exposure. However, mercury is a known trigger for autoimmune diseases as well.
Be this as it may, even when extremely ill, Alcott was still able to pen these volumes as a memento to her niece, which says a lot about the personality and determination of Alcott herself.
