Sorry it's soooo formal mad , but like I said it's my English lesson greenS


The Way I See It is written by Melissa Sue Anderson.The book's copyright is 2010 and it is available from amazon.com online.The book is a look back of her life in Little House on the Prairie.

The main characters in the memoir are the actor,who plays Mary Ingalls as told all about in the book.The way she writes the book tells all about her - serious-minded and not like her character.Michael Landon plays Mary's father, Charles.Mike is the executive producer as well as main director.He loves being "Mike- laugh3 funny laugh3 down laugh3 to laugh3 earth" and is patient with the kids on set.He periodically had a mean streak when his marriage broke up though banghead .Karen Grassle, a classically trained stage actress, acts as Mary's mother, Caroline.Anderson describes her as "divalike". Karen argued alot with Michael Landon's "filming tactics" Laughing Melissa Gilbert, plays Mary's famous sister, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Gilbert, like Landon, had a rough childhood.Her father died when she was 11 years old and later in life had a drug and alcohol addiction.Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush play Carrie Ingalls.Some other co-stars include Katherine Magregor, Richard Bull, Alison Angrim, Dean Butler, Linwood Boomer and Victor French.The setting of the book is where the series was filmed -in the Simi Valley, near Hollywood, California.The award winning drama ran from 1974 to 1983. thud

One challenge that Melissa and the crew faced was Mike Landon's divorce: due to an affair with Cindy Clerico in 1979.She disappointingly expresses that she couldn't believe Mike would inflict that sort of pain on his real family. She comes to terms later on and realized that he was merely human and had fallen off his"pedestal".Did Melissa still get on with Michael as she'd always done before? Read all about this season-by-season journey in her memoir.

I especially enjoyed reading about the 1978 Emmy Awards.Melissa was nominated for Outstanding Lead actress in a drama series.She vividly recalls Mike teasing her that day:"You know you're not going to win,"he said.Read the book to see if Michael was wrong or right and share Melissa's memories as an actress. greenS

Well-written, Ruth! Maybe you're right that it's a bit short. Is it supposed to be a certain length?

Thanks for sharing it, Ruth! It's well-written, but yes, for the length of the book, it might be too short.

No... It's supposed to have 4 paragraphs 1-The name,copyright and author of the book. 2- Who are the main characters? 3- The characters challenge. 4- What did you enjoy about the book?

It looked long when I wrote it out but I guess it wasn't really Blue

Nice job, Ruth. It's almost 350 words, so I guess it depends on how much information they wanted.

Oh - well if you only needed four paragraphs, you should be good to go, then, Ruth.

I think it's fine if those were the criteria for the book report.
I would give it an A- (no extra credit for the smilies, although I did enjoy the 'Thud' smilie, nice placement there). Smile
