Overheard: Laura Ingalls Wilder Edition

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


(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.
