Overheard: Laura Ingalls Wilder Edition

Scene:  family sitting in living room after breakfast, finishing the last few pages of Little House on the Prairie


***SPOILER ALERT***


(In case you haven’t read the book, at the conclusion, the little family is driving away from their beloved house on the prairie, not knowing what the future holds.)

Mom:  So what do you think will happen in the next book?  Where are they going to end up?
Andrew:  I think they will go to Independence [Missouri] and have a house there.
Jonathan, matter-of-factly:  I think they will get eaten by wolves.
