Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Carolyn Haywood, author of the beloved Betsy series, here are four more classics for young readers. These adorable stories of childhood adventures are as fresh today as when they were written more than a half century ago. And now, thanks to dynamic new covers, they're ready to charm a whole new generation of readers.

Merry Primrose Ramsay is only a little girl, but because of World War II, she must leave her family in England to live with relatives in America. At first it's not easy living in a new place, but life in America is full of fun. There's a picnic with her new classmates, a birthday party, and at Christmas, Merry receives the best present of all!

Synopsis:

Rose finds a brave new world when she leaves WWII England for the shores of the United States.
