The Little House is a storybook written and illustrated by Virginia Lee Burton. The story won the Caldecott Medal in 1943. This is a story of a house, that watches throughout the years, the city that was once just a glimmer in the distance, sprawl closer and closer to it, until eventually the Little House is surrounded by the hustle and bustle of city life.
A 70th-anniversary release of the 1942 Caldecott Medal winner follows the journey of a little house from her bucolic hill to the city and back again, in an edition that features a bonus CD reading, a new introduction by the author's son and a foil treatment on the cover jacket. 50,000 first printing.
