Review:

"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."--Jill Kalz, 2008 MN Book Awards Readers' Choice Award winner

"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."--Anna Quindlen

"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."--Laura Lippman

"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."--Ann M. Martin, creator/author of The Baby-sitters Club

"Slipping into a Betsy book 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."--Meg Cabot

"Family loyalty and the devotion of friends to one another, which for me are the defining characteristics of the Betsy-Tacy stories."--Esther Hautzig, award-winning author, former Director of Children's Book Promotion for Thomas Y. Crowell Co., and former publicist for Betsy's Wedding in 1955

"The Betsy-Tacy books were among my favorites when I was growing up."--Nora Ephron, Academy Award-nominated director

"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!"--Bette Midler, actor and singer

"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."--Johanna Hurwitz, award-winning author of more than sixty popular books for young readers

"Some characters become your friends for life. That's how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy."--Judy Blume, bestselling author

"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."--Claudia Mills, children's book author, winner of National Book Award and Golden Kite Award

From the Back Cover:

Betsy and the Great World Betsy Ray is twenty-one and on the adventure of a lifetime: a solo tour of Europe! There's even a handsome Italian, Marco, who's going overboard for her--if only she could stop thinking about her ex-sweetheart Joe Willard.

Betsy's Wedding When Betsy's boat docks in New York, Joe is waiting there . . . with a ring! But she's going to learn that marriage isn't all candlelight, roses, and kisses. There's also cooking, ironing, cleaning, and budgeting-- and will she be able to find time to forge a writing career?
