Reviews

"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
"Some characters become your friends for life. That's how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy."--Judy Blume, bestselling beloved YA author
"The Betsy-Tacy books were among my favorites when I was growing up."--- Nora Ephron, Academy Award-nominated director
"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-sitter's Club
"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
"Pure bliss.... I now realize that one of the reasons I believed I could someday become a writer was because of Betsy's own infallible confidence that she would be a writer."--Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times 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
"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, New York Times Bestselling Author
"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
"There are three authors whose body of work I have reread more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace."--Anna Quindlen, New York Times Bestselling Author
