Editorial Reviews

Meg Cabot
“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.”
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
“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
“Some characters become your friends for life. That’s how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy.”
Nora Ephron
“The Betsy-Tacy books were among my favorites when I was growing up.”
Ann M. Martin
“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
“Family loyalty and the devotion of friends to one another, which for me are the defining characteristics of the Betsy-Tacy stories.”
Claudia Mills
“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
“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
“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.”

    You'll never want to leave Deep Valley!

    Two fabulous books together in one volume for the first time! In Betsy Was a Junior, Betsy and her friends start a sorority, procrastinate about studying, party, and eventually learn that being a good friend means being inclusive. In Betsy and Joe, it is senior year, and Betsy faces a difficult choice - which of the two boys who mean so much to her is The One? Fans of Betsy-Tacy still debate this very question, so you are sure to have an opinion too.

    Yippppeeeeee! They're back!

    I have loved this series of books, based on the author's years of growing up in Mankato MN, since I was a preteen back in the late 1950s. My sister introduced me to them, and I still own her original books. The first four books in the series follow Betsy, Tacy and Tib from age 5-12, and the next 6 books follow them through high school, into the Great World and first years of marriage. If you love the musical Meet Me in St. Louis, you'll love these books set in the same time period. Great stories, wonderful characters with teen-age problems we all can identify with even 100 years later. Maud Hart Lovelace and Jane Austen books are the ones I read and re-read often.

    Nostalgic and exquisite! Every girl must read these books!

    I have read and reread Maud Hart Lovelace's Betsy books. Teenage girls today can completely relate to Betsy's experiences, even 100 years later. These books make you wish for a vanished era...You'll never want to leave Deep Valley!
