Under the Lilacs: From the Original Publisher

Under the Lilacs by Louisa May Alcott

Book Description:
This is a story of two runaways--Ben Brown and his dog, Sancho--who have escaped from a hard life in the circus to search for Ben's lost father. Tired and hungry, the pair are taking in by young Bab and Betty Moss and their mother, as well as the Mosses' neighbors, Miss Celia and her brother, Thorny. Thanks to their kindness, Ben soon finds a job, a family, and a chance to go to school. But can life with Miss Celia and his other new friends ever compare to the excitement of the circus? And will Ben stay out of mischief long enough to find out?

My thoughts:
Here is another book I read when I was a teenager, so I don't really remember it. I did buy the book for the collection, so I must have liked it.


  1. I don't really remember it, since I read it long ago; but I do know I loved it!

    Lovely cover.

    Here's mine:

  2. Fabulous selection!

  3. I loved Louisa May Alcott when I was a child, but this is one I've never read. Good choice!
