Overview

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868). Her youngest sister May died in 1879 and Louisa took over the care of her niece, Lulu, who was named after Louisa and hence the name of these books – this being the first of the second volumes. Alcott just managed to complete the 3 volumes as a lasting reminder for Lulu before she, herself, passed.

The 12 stories in this volume were previously published by Alcott under the title "Flower Fables", they are:
The Frost King And How The Fairies Conquered Him.
Lilybell And Thistledown.
Ripple, The Water Sprite.
Eva's Visit To Fairyland.
Sunshine, And Her Brothers And Sisters.
The Fairy Spring.
Queen Aster.
The Brownie And The Princess.
Mermaids.
Little Bud.
The Flower's Story.
Bonus Story - The Princes And The Pansies: A Fairy Tale

In all, Lulu's Library is a collection of 32 children’s short stories in three volumes written between 1886–1889.
LOUISA MAY ALCOTT (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised in New England by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Alcott suffered chronic health problems in her later years, including vertigo. She and her earliest biographers attributed her illness and death to mercury poisoning. During her American Civil War service, Alcott contracted typhoid fever and was treated with a compound containing mercury. Recent analysis of Alcott's illness suggests that her chronic health problems may have been associated with an autoimmune disease, not mercury exposure. However, mercury is a known trigger for autoimmune diseases as well.
