  • Great classic book series. My daughter and son both enjoy it as a bed-time story.

  • This was exactly the edition I read as a child and it felt so good to be reading it again. If you've never read the Betsy-Tacy books, you should try them, especially if you like kid's books and/or old-fashioned things. They're charming and fun. The illustrations are perfect.

  • This is the 4th in a series of books about a girl named Betsy and her friends and family. Each book is wonderfully written and illustrated, have read and re-read them. Highly recommend!

  • My favorite of the younger Betsy-Tacy books, I've found this makes a great gift and intro my younger nieces.

  • My daughter was so excited when she saw this gift for her birthday. She ran over and gave me the biggest hug and said: "This is the best book ever, because you can read it over and over."

  • My daughter and I read it every night. WE are reading the entire series. It came in expected condition. thanks

  • Yeah it was written for young girls but this 52 year old man thoroughly enjoyed. Read it cover to cover on a plane from Tampa to Minneapolis then passed it on to an 8 year old girl.

  • Her books are such a big part of my childhood, my daughter's childhood and now my granddaughter is in for such a treat.
