Betsy is back to school with her friends Ellen and Billy. A whole lot of fun and shennanigans ensue, with plenty of scrapes. That's Carolyn Haywood for you. It's dated, but a peek into another era for little kids and big kids and grown-ups alike (Plus, if Grandma gets nostalgic...).--Catherine
This is a great book! I am thrilled that classics are still around, especially in this age of technology with the internet. I am a 52 year old man, and I will always love Betsy and her friends no matter how old I am! I have read the Betsy books over and over again more than any other books I have read, and I really never get tired of them!
