Last published in hardback in 1994, a treasury of all the poems written by the author for children, including The Wandering Moon, The Blackbird in the Lilac and Ragged Robin. Illustrated with black and white drawings by Edward Ardizzone.
Inside the little house in the Big Woods live the Ingalls family: Ma, Pa, Mary, Laura and baby Carrie. Outside the little house are the wild animals: the bears and the bees, the deer and the wolves. This is the tale of how they live together, in harmony mainly, but sometimes in fear.
The sun-kissed prarie stretches out around the Ingalls family, smiling its welcome after their hard journey across America. But looks can be deceiving and they soon find that they must share the land with wild bears and Indians. Will there be enough land for all of them?
