about

2008 Winner of the Acorn-Plantos Award for People's Poetry

The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder is an unusual collection of poems that combines craft, innovation, humour and down-to-earth insight in a focused and riveting read that will charm poetry buffs of every stripe.

The poems in The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder subversively and imaginatively inhabit the voices of characters from Wilder's famous Little House books--human and non-human, animate and inanimate--but launch them in new directions. Rather than acting as extensions of Wilder's stories, the voices, characters and details in the poems become vehicles for modern-day questions and observations.

"This is an accomplished, beautiful book. I can see myself returning to it many times. It's a must-have for Little House fans, and for other readers a fascinating journey into historical silence finally given a voice."
