Betsy and Tacy and Tib (Betsy and Tacy Books)by Maud Hart Lovelace
Synopses & Reviews
Betsy and Tacy are best friends. Then Tib moves into the neighborhood and the three of them start to play together. The grown-ups think they will quarrel, but they don't. Sometimes they quarrel with Betsy's and Tacy's bossy big sisters, but they never quarrel among themselves.
They are not as good as they might be. They cook up awful messes in the kitchen, throw mud on each other and pretend to be beggars, and cut off each other's hair. But Betsy, Tacy, and Tib always manage to have a good time.
Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers.
Betsy and Tacy were good friends first, then Tib moved into the neighborhood, so the three of them started playing together. They were not as obedient as they might have been--they cooked up awful messes, daubed themselves with mud, and cut each other's hair off--but they always managed to have a good time.
About the Author
Maud Hart Lovelace was born in Mankato, Minnesota, and based the Betsy-Tacy books on her own childhood. She once wrote, "I lived the happiest childhood a child could possibly know," and it is this joy that comes through in her books.
