There are lots of children on Hill Street, but no little girls Betsy's age. So when a new family moves into the house across the street, Betsy hopes they will have a little girl she can play with. Sure enough, they do--a little girl named Tacy. And from the moment they meet at Betsy's fifth birthday party, Betsy and Tacy become such good friends that everyone starts to think of them as one person--Betsy-Tacy. Betsy and Tacy have lots of fun together. They make a playhouse from a piano box, have a sand store, and dress up and go calling. And one day, they come home to a wonderful surprise--a new friend named Tib. Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers. Ages 8 up.

Betsy and Tacy are best friends. Then Tib moves into the neighborhood and the three of them start to play together. The grown-ups think they will quarrel, but they don't. Sometimes they quarrel with Betsy's and Tacy's bossy big sisters, but they never quarrel among themselves. They are not as good as they might be. They cook up awful messes in the kitchen, throw mud on each other and pretend to be beggars, and cut off each other's hair. But Betsy, Tacy, and Tib always manage to have a good time. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Betsy, Tacy, and Tib can't wait to be ten. After all, getting two numbers in your age is the beginning of growing up--exciting things are about to happen. And they do! The girls fall in love with the King of Spain, perform in the school entertainment, and for the first time, go all the way over the Big Hill to Little Syria by themselves. There Betsy, Tacy and Tib make new friends and learn a thing or two. They learn that new Americans are the best Americans. And they learn that they themselves wouldn't want to be anything else.
