I'm trying to figure out if they used inspiration from the show for this one or mostly the books.

I haven't read the books, except for the parts my third grade teacher read to the class, but my thoughts while reading the review were that it sounded like Country Girls and Town Party, Country Party with a few new scenes thrown in.

That's a good question... I would think that there would have to be at least some inspiration from the show. The mentions Mrs. Oleson sniffing at people she disliked the looks of, and I believe she sniffed disapproval in the show. Though that could be stretching things a bit! ~laughs~

PostSubject: Nellie Oleson Meets Laura Ingalls???   Mon May 13, 2013 3:02 pm

Hi,
I was wondering where the cheapest place is to get this book (preferably from the UK as that's where I live)

On amazon.co.uk its gonna cost me at least £40 pounds which I think is something like $61.16 in dollars.

On amazon.com it will cost me £27.67p in GBP including tax which is still a lot for a small book. why is it so much money??? Is it out of print?

And also Is it as good as it looks? is it really worth getting?

Thanks so much for your help. Smile

Regards LHOTPfan2000

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.

Not sure on where you can find it for the best price, but here is a review someone did of the book for my blog: http://lauralittlehouseontheprairie.blogspot.com/2008/07/nellie-oleson-meets-laura-ingalls-by.html I hope it helps you decide if you want to purchase it or not.

Thank you very much that's very helpful.

It seems a bit silly that Mrs and Mr Olson have different names though.
I want to get it now!

Thanks again.

Oh and P.S are you the same BethandManly that's on prairie talk? Ooops

I found this book on amazon and was wondering if anyone had read it. I'd never heard of it until I found it while looking up another book. The description says it is a story of Laura and Nellie's rivalry told from Nellie's point of view. I think it sounds like an interesting read, it'd be neat to know what Nellie thought since she didn't appear in many of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books.
