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.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 1998
This larger-sized gift edition of the classic, with pink-ribbon page marker and a busy and distracting pole-and-vine border surrounding each page, is truly unnecessary publishing. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
