Product Description

Children will love the timeless classic of Betsy Ray, a young woman growing up in the early 1900s whose ambition is to be a writer, and the adventures she and her friends are in! Originally in single volume formats, now 2 stories are featured in 1 book.
Betsy Was a Junior: It's the best school year ever, especially now that charming, funny Tib Muller is back in Deep Valley. But when her crowd gets into trouble, Betsy's best year could turn out to be her worst.
Betsy and Joe: Betsy always thought she and Joe Willard were made for each other-and now that summer's over and senior year's begun, it seems her dream is coming true! But her friend Tony Markham has come calling as well-and his intentions are definitely romantic.

Author Bio

Maud Hart Lovelace (1892-1980) based her Betsy-Tacy series on her own childhood. Her series still boasts legions of fans, many of whom are members of the Betsy-Tacy Society, a national organization based in Mankato, Minnesota.

Editorial Reviews

“Slipping into Betsy’s world is like slipping into a favorite pair of well-worn slippers: It’s always a pleasure to live in Betsy’s world for a little while, to experience her simple joys, but also her (thankfully short-lived) sorrows.”
“There are three authors whose body of work I have re-read more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace.”
“When I was growing up in the Bronx, I had lots of friends. But the girls I most enjoyed spending time with were Betsy, Tacy and Tib....in the series by Maud Hart Lovelace... - three girls full of good ideas, adventures and fun.”
“I re-read these books every year, marveling at how a world so quaint - Shirtwaists! Pompadours! Merry Widow Hats! - can feature a heroine who is undeniably modern.”
“I read every one of these Betsy-Tacy-Tib books twice. I loved them as a child, as a young adult, and now, reading them with my daughter, as a mother. What a wonderful world it was!”
“Some characters become your friends for life. That’s how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy.”
“The Betsy-Tacy books were among my favorites when I was growing up.”
“I am fairly certain that my independent, high-spirited grandmother must have had a childhood similar to Betsy Ray’s…As I read..., I felt that I was having an unexpected and welcome peek into Granny’s childhood-a gift to me from Maud Hart Lovelace.”
“Family loyalty and the devotion of friends to one another, which for me are the defining characteristics of the Betsy-Tacy stories.”
“I truly consider BETSY AND TACY GO DOWNTOWN to be the finest novel in the English language! I will never love any other books as much as I love the Betsy-Tacy books.”
“I grew up 30 miles north of Mankato, and trips to town were filled with mystery and magic, because I was walking the same streets that Betsy and Tacy once walked. The Betsy-Tacy books...., more than any other books, fed my dream of becoming a writer one day.”
