A CHARMING Storybook for children by LOUISA MAY ALCOTT.

Spinning-Wheel Stories by AMERICAN author LOUISA MAY ALCOTT is a book of short stories for children first published in 1884 in the UNITED STATES.

"'Spinning-Wheel Stories,' by [Miss Alcott], have all the old attraction of hearty good-fellowship with boys and girls that characterized her earlier works, and show an advance in artistic manipulation. The subjects of the new collection range from heroism in La Vendée to catamount-hunting win American forests, from idyls of love and self-sacrifice in the days of the Revolution to the doings of a merry band of maidens in a modern boarding school." -The Critic, December 6, 1884.

Sneak Peak

'It is too bad to have our jolly vacation spoiled by this provoking storm. Didn't mind it yesterday, because we could eat all the time; but here we are cooped up for a week, perhaps, and I'd like to know what we are to do," growled Geoff, as he stood at the window looking gloomily at the bleak scene without. It certainly was discouraging; for the north wind howled, the air was dark with falling snow, and drifts were rising over fences, roads, and fields, as if to barricade the Christmas party in the great country house.'
