Under the Lilacs by Louisa M. Alcott

Under the Lilacs by Louisa M. Alcott

The hero of this story is a circus boy, who escapes from his oppressors and finds a shelter in a manor-house. Here he comes into contact with other children, and with her usual felicity in describing child life, Miss Alcott tells his adventures and those of his dog. It is a clever story, and will take first rank among juvenile as well as adult readers.
