5.0 out of 5 stars Little House / Big Honor Oct. 17 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
To have Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House saga packaged by the Library of America is testimony to the enduring story that has never been out of print since they first appeared in 1932. At first I was leery of having the classic Garth Williams illustrations missing, but relished the power of Wilder's descriptions to stand on their own in the canon of pure American literature. No illustrations are needed for these stories to come alive and introduce new generations to a time and place long gone but essential to our cultural history. Library of America packaged Wilder's words in a beautiful 2-volume set with a classic photograph of prairie and author on the slipcase box. That's a perfect package for the Little House books to be presented as American classics for all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but . . . Nov. 13 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a huge Laura Ingalls Wilder fan, and have ready many books by her and about her. I thought this 2-volume collection would contain more information than it does. It's basically the Little House set, unillustrated, with footnotes at the end. The footnotes are interesting but honestly, they don't add much to the Ingalls story. And I still prefer the old volumes with the extremely charming Garth Williams illustrations. I'm giving this 3 stars mostly because I love Laura's writing -- not so much for this new repackaging of her story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little House books April 3 2013
By Debra J. Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed when I received these Little House books as they are not illustrated. I was really looking forward to reading them to my grandchildren and without the illustrations (which I expected to be there) I feel the story will be less interesting. As a child being able to see the illustrations of Laura, Mary and Almanzo were a great part of my fascination with the stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the "Little House" novels collected Oct. 31 2012
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These two volumes are a complete set of one of the most widely read series of stories about the American pioneer families. The presentation is consistent with the Library of America's intention to collect important fiction and non-fiction in permanent, high-quality editions. The volumes include a 20-page chronology of the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, which helps set the context of the stories, and notes about things and people mentioned in the stories that might not be familiar to today's reader (for example, quotes of lines from songs of the period).

These books are an attractive set of an important part of American literature, intended for adult readers (much like the recently issued LoA set of science fiction novels of the 1950s). Young readers might start with paperback editions (though they will cost more in total than this set if the copies are new).

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I've been searching for Jan. 30 2013
By A Little House Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been looking to reread as an adult the Little House books I loved and read again and again as a child but didn't want to bother dragging the child sized books on trips. It wouldn't be worth it to bring 2 or 3 books that would take me as much time to get through as 1 adult book so I was ecstatic when I found all 9 books in two handy volumes.

If you are looking to introduce your own young relatives to the Little House series this isn't it, stick with the child sized ones with the wonderful illustrations. However if you're looking to reread treasured stories in a more convenient format then buy this set.

The cover photos are beautiful as well as the binding and the ribbon bookmarks. i also love that they include photographs of the real Laura Ingalls Wilder as an adult and as a child with Mary and Carrie.

Totally worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly Right Jan. 7 2013
By karin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a Christmas gift and I was very pleased, as was the recipient. The slipcover is lovely and the books are a pleasure to hold in the hands - nice shape, not too heavy. I could not find this information anywhere online, but these books ARE printed in the United States of America. I would expect nothing less from a nonprofit that calls itself "The Library of America" and claims to be preserving American Literature, but you never know these days. I would have returned them if they had arrived otherwise!
