Book Review: “Little Women Mermaid Edition” by Megan Lois Whitehill

Picture Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March as mermaids adorned with long, graceful tails and pastel-colored hair, living under the sea. That’s what the niece of Megan Lois Whitehill inspired in the author when she requested a mermaid book for her birthday. The result is Little Women: Mermaid Edition (Rockwater Press).


The result is a charming, amusing and poignant reimagining of Alcott’s Little Women. Whitehill creates the fantastical world of the Marsh family, who live in a modest but homey cave furnished with clam shell beds and chairs with seaweed cushions, coral fixtures and colorful walls. Sand dollars serve as money. There is squid ink for artist Amy, baby catfish and a miniature herringbone harp for Beth, shell corsets for Meg, scrolls for scroll-worm Jo and a letter-in-a-bottle from Mr. Marsh.
