I wouldn't thank you for the new editions. The illustrations by Garth Williams are missing and to me they help tell the story. They are a HUGE disappointment!!

:agree: The old ones are are so much more "nice" to look at. To me those are the spirit of the Little House books

I think both covers are really nice. The one's with the actual people really look like MSA and MG!

Yes they do... I thought it was them the first time I saw them.. but I think that´s what I don´t like about it... It´s like the books are eventually based on the tv series and not the other way around...

I rather the old ones. To me, they've become parts of the stories.

I like the older version better. I think that the covers to the new editions are pretty, but I miss Garth's illustrations!

Call me old fashioned, but I picked the old ones.
I'm pretty sure that some day, when the new edition will be forgotten for a long time, the illustrations by Garth Williams will still becharm (not only) the children. They are just timeless.

I'm quite a classical person too, so, Garth Williams drawings are wonderful for me.

Anyone knows if he is around, yet? I know his is a very elderly man and that he was very ill some two years ago...Is he alive?

Wonder if we contacted Harper Collins, if they would put the illustrations back into the new versions?

Probably not. I guess they were trying to appeal to new readers with the newer pictures.

I read that you can get the Garth Williams illustrations in some newer editions - but that it costs more. (I think it was a version that had four books in one volume) That was on a blog in England somewhere . . . .so, I don't know if it's true here in the States or not. But how rotten is that!

GARTH WILLIAMS

Thank you, Rhonda! I didn't have the link. It seems that I was VEEEERYYY back in the news. Hahaha. Poor guy had left us longtime ago. Blue But he lived a long, interesting life. And he will be always remembered. And when someone is remembered the way he is, he will never die among us.
