Laura Ingalls Wilder butter statue coming to Iowa State Fair

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa State Fair will this year celebrate "Little House on the Prairie" with a butter sculpture of author Laura Ingalls Wilder.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2vTNBlG ) that the dairy likeness of Wilder will be displayed next to the butter cow, which is an annual feature at the fair.

Wilder wrote the "Little House" series about 19th Century homesteaders in the Midwest, and the books formed the basis for the long-running television show. She spent part of her childhood in Burr Oak, Iowa.

A butter replica of the Solheim Cup golf trophy will also be displayed at the Aug. 10-20 event. Previous butter sculptures include Elvis Presley and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The Iowa State Fair attracts more than a million visitors every year.
