Cover art for a number of upcoming titles has been released in the past few weeks: the fourth and fifth volumes of the rebooted Little House Chapters Books series (Laura & Nellie, due out in August; Christmas Stories, due out in September); Sarah Miller’s novel Caroline: Little House, Revisited (due out in September); Marta McDowell’s book-length study A Wilder World (due out in September); and a reprint of William Anderson’s edited book Laura’s Album, first published in 1998.
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series chronicled frontier life in the late 1860s. The classic books are both a coming of age story based on Wilder’s life and a reflection of the pioneer spirit of the time. They are also deeply rooted in the natural world. The plants, animals, and landscapes are so integral to the stories, they almost become their own characters. A Wilder World, by New York Times bestselling author Marta McDowell, beautifully explores Laura Ingalls Wilder’s deep relationship to the landscape and illuminates a crucial aspect of the pioneer experience. Featuring the original art by Helen Sewell and Garth Williams and historical and contemporary photographs, A Wilder World is a must-read companion to the Little House books and a must-have treasure for the millions of readers enchanted by Laura’s wild and beautiful life.
I will post cover art and further information about this upcoming book once it becomes available.
