Reviews for Little House on the Prairie

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring
This seventy-fifth-anniversary edition includes colorized versions of Garth Williams's classic understated illustrations (added in 1953). The shades are appropriately frontier-y, all muted browns and sunrise yellows, but the gleaming-white pages are a bit of a distraction. Some diverting ephemera--the book's first jacket, letters between Wilder and her editor, details about 2008's Little House musical--are appended. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
