Seventy years ago, Virginia Lee Burton built the Little House way out in the country,

seventy years, and beyond.

A beloved classic and an award-winning staple of American children's literature, The Little House is celebrating its 70th birthday with an anniversary edition complete with audio CD and a new introduction!

The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer.

About the Author

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
