The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie

The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie - Wendy McClure I was led to believe this was going to be a funny commentary on the Little House books, which are among my most beloved childhood books. In fact, it's so much more than that. Yes, the book will make you laugh out loud, but it's actually a very astute, clever, well-written odyssey through the fictionalized life of a literary heroine. There is so much that is familiar, but McClure's additions of "the real story" made Laura Ingalls come to life for me in a way that reading the Little House books never did.Props to Chris for good naturedness. :)
