Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown

003

 

by Maud Hart Lovelace

Published 1943

Betsy and  her friends are growing up!  In this book, the last before the girls enter high school in Betsy in Spite of Herself, Betsy, Tacy, and Tib find themselves entangled in many adventures, especially now that they are old enough to go to town by themselves.  Times are change in Deep Valley–there is a new-fangled horseless carriage, a theater, and a beautiful new hotel.

Lovelace describes the changes to the small town beautifully, probably because these books are very closely autobiographical.  I am growing more and more fond of Betsy and her friends, and cannot believe that I have only just discovered these perfect stories.

5/5
