“Some characters become your friends for life. That’s how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy.” —Judy Blume
The First Four Books in the Betsy-Tacy Series in One Volume
With Forewords by Judy Blume, Ann M. Martin and Johanna Hurwitz
The first four books in the beloved Betsy-Tacy series, together in one volume, ready to delight a new generation of readers—and to bring a grownup generation of readers back to the engrossing stories of their youth. Following the childhoods of Betsy Ray and her friends in the late 1800s and early 1900s, this handsome anthology collects the original Betsy-Tacy as well as Betsy, Tacy and Tib, Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill, and Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown. Forewords by Judy Blume, Esther Hautzig, and Johanna Hurwitz, and the original illustrations by Lois Lenski, will make readers of all ages feel at home in the imaginative life of young Betsy Ray as she awakens to the challenges and triumphs of her home in Deep Valley (Mankato), Minnesota.
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!
Betsy-Tacy fans never die. They just reread.
Betsy was a high-school junior when automobiles were new...but her problems were much the same as her modern high-school sisters.
Family loyalty and the devotion of friends to one another, which for me are the defining characteristics of the Betsy-Tacy stories.
I am fairly certain that my independent, high-spirited grandmother must have had a childhood similar to Betsy Rays As I read..., I felt that I was having an unexpected and welcome peek into Grannys childhooda gift to me from Maud Hart Lovelace.
I now realize that one of the reasons I believed I could someday become a writer was because of Betsys own infallible confidence that she would be a writer.
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 . . . three girls full of good ideas, adventures and fun.
