In 2007, HarperTrophy gave the Little House books a facelift. They came away from the Garth Williams cover art and used real photographs on the new covers. I haven't seen the new versions, but it is my understanding that the new paperbacks also don't include Williams' original drawings inside, but that the new hardcovers do.
There have been mixed results about these new covers. I would love to hear your opinion. Please take the survey at the left, which will remain open until May 1st. Feel free to expand on your thoughts in this blog entry.
