Meet the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.

Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.

I found that the books were not in the condition that I personally wanted. I had some smudges in the books when I took them out of the delivery box. I was not impressed with the quality of the books. Other than that, the company's delivery service has left me satisfied. I had ordered some other books at another store in my own country. Those books took longer to arrive than my Barnes & Noble books which were from overseas! So, overall, the only downside for me in buying my collection from Barnes & Noble is the smudges in my books. I like my books to be in perfect condition because I spent a great deal of money on them. Thankyou Barnes & Noble for providing me with much happiness in reading the books though. The words in the books are still the same to me as I had read it as a young child at school. I've always loved the books and have enjoyed learning more about what life was like in the 19th century. Following the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder through these books has still left me staying up late at night reading her adventures. She is a wonderful woman with a wonderful life story. The best thing about reading this series is that I know the details are precise and are real. Every adventure in the book are real. I know this because the author is the girl in the book! It is definitely a joy to read her books. The actual collection is a real collector's edition as it has fine paper with coloured pictures to aid in understanding the story. The large words is wonderful for youngsters to read as it is easier with larger sized words. I definitely recommend this series for girls aged 8-12 who love to read and learn about life in the olden days and of other girls. Boys can read this series too but may not enjoy it as much as girls because the book is from a girl's point of view.

I had the set as a child and loved them they were my favorite books growing up. I probably read every single one at least three times. I would highly recommend these books as the teach morals as well as history.
