Synopsis

The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton

Seventy years ago, Virginia Lee Burton built the Little House way out in the country, and since then generations of readers have been enchanted by the story of this happy home and her journey from bucolic hill and the pleasures of nature to the bustling city, and back again. In celebration of this American classic's seventieth anniversary, this special edition features a brand-new introduction by Virginia Lee Burton's son, noted sculptor Aris Demetrios; a bonus audio CD of the story; and a foil treatment on the jacket. This beautiful and timeless picture book is sure to be a favourite among readers for the next seventy years, and beyond.

Reviews

About the Author

Virginia Lee Burton
Virginia Lee Burton was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for The Little House, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans.
