Borrow Borrow Borrow

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?

About the Author-
  • 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.

Reviews-
  • Anna Quindlen

    "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."

  • Laura Lippman

    "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."

  • Bette Midler, actor and singer

    "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!"

  • Judy Blume, bestselling author

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

  • Nora Ephron, Academy Award-nominated director

    "The Betsy-Tacy books were among my favorites when I was growing up."

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

    "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."

  • 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

    "Family loyalty and the devotion of friends to one another, which for me are the defining characteristics of the Betsy-Tacy stories."

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

    "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."

  • Jill Kalz, 2008 MN Book Awards Readers' Choice Award winner

    "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."

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

    "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."
