In the process, they become close friends with their wealthy neighbor, Theodore Laurence, known as "Laurie."
As the girls grow older, each faces her own personal demons and moral challenges. Jo, our beloved protagonist, must tame her tomboyish ways and learn to be more ladylike while pursuing her ambition to be a great writer.

Beth, the shy one, must conquer her bashfulness, while Amy, the youngest, has to sacrifice her aristocratic pride.

Pity poor Waldo Puppybreath! In the spirit of fearless journalism, he has written an editorial for the school paper suggesting that the proposed site for a new high school building is actually a swamp! The land speculator is not amused. The high school bully, a dead ringer for the Godfather, is muscling in on the Prom Queen Contest. And the biology teacher is demanding Waldo's resignation from the paper because it's interfering with his studies of the anatomy of a cat. In such trying times, Waldo draws strength from his comic book Wonder Heroes. So, when knocked out in a fight with the school Godfather, he enters a twilight world where all the characters of Act One are transformed into the colorful and totally unbelievable characters of Waldo's beloved comic books!
A fast-paced comic book farce with a zany romance, some rip-roaring chases, slapstick action and of course good triumphing over evil!
