Carolyn Haywood's stories about her irrepressible character Betsy have never been out of print, and now, thanks to dynamic new covers, the Betsy books will find their way onto the bookshelves of modern young readers—and into the hearts of a whole new generation.

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!
