Reviews

hilarious

(4.5 stars)

Kept me laughing the whole time! (It is supposed to be sad- but so dramatic and tragic that it is crazy funny!) l can easily imagine Meg,Jo,Beth and Amy writing and acting these plays. However, I recommend reading Little Woman beforehand, as you'll get more of the jokes. Fantastic job readers!

This is such a wonderful little collection, so funny! Can you believe Bianca's singing it is crazy funny. Loved it! Very enjoyable read
