Can you believe that Little House on the Prairie, the beloved television show, has been turned into a novel!?!
Just kidding, the beloved children’s books by Laura Ingalls Wilder has charmed millions, and for many, the versions featuring Garth Williams’ illustrations are definitive. Who wouldn’t like it? OK, Nellie Olsen, I grant you. These Scathing Book Reviews of Little House on the Prairie make you want to root for the locusts:
Reading the unendingly dull chapters about Pa building the house, the door, the fireplace and the well made me want to burn the log cabin down. And I still can’t believe that Ma ironed on the wagon in the middle of the prairie. (wtf?)
…and, apparently reading Harry Potter will ruin the Little House books. Be forewarned:
I recommend this book only to kids under the age of eight and kids who have not read the Harry Potter or Artemis Fowl series. For lovers of fantasy, mystery, magic or science-fiction, you must turn elsewhere for a good read.
