this edition of the Little House books is very well done. All the original pictures have been kept in tack. I am a huge fan of these books and was pleasantly surprised at how well this volume was done.

Beautiful book, I bought it as a gift, and went back to the store to get one for myself!

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous book. I have read the Little House series too many times to count. I have purchased at least 3 full sets because I read them to death. This book I bought simply because it's so pretty. The cover (It's burgundy, or at least the one I bought. The picture makes it look a little purple.) and the pictures inside are very well done. I really hope that Barnes and Noble is planning on putting out another leather bound set with the remaining Little House books! I will definitely buy it if they do.

I have always loved this series! I still have the original books that I received when I was a little girl. I hope that Barnes &amp; Noble is planning on publishing the rest of the series in a second volume!

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for an avid Little House fan. It was very well received and much appreciated. There are several of us that would love to have a second volume with the rest of the novels.

I gave this book to my 11 year old daughter for Christmas. She absolutely loved it. The leather is beautiful and the gold leaf pages make it very special and something she will treasure for years. Please make a second volume with the last Laura Ingalls Wilder books in it--would be so great to have a complete leather bound set.

Having the first 5 books all together is nice. Even though these stories are for younger people and is an easy read, I still love to read these stories. Its interesting to read the life of Laura and her family on the prairie and how they lived. Im not sure how much of this is true and how much is fiction, but its still fun to read. You cant help but get involved with the people and story line. I highly recommend this book to all ages.
