Invincible Louisa : The Story of the Author of Little Women by Cornelia Meigs, T38, Scholastic  paperback printing, 183 pages. Cover illustrated by Ronni Solbert.

DESCRIPTION: “Every reader of Little Women and Little Men asks:
Were Meg, Beth, Amy, and Jo real?
Was there a Laurie?
Were there pillow fights on Saturday night?
In this book Cornelia Meigs tells the real story behind the famous characters- the poor-as-church mice Alcotts and the real Louisa who vowed to give the beloved members of her family what each so sorely needed.
A truer-than-fiction account of a remarkable family and a courageous girl. Winner of the John Newbery Award.” (from the back cover)

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
