Betsy-Tacy Reviews

I thought it might be useful to re-post the links to my reviews of the Betsy-Tacy books. That way newcomers to Maud Hart Lovelace's books have easy access to find out what these books are all about (most without any spoilers) and also why I love them so much.

Because I only just re-read the entire Betsy-Tacy series last year I won't be re-reading them this year. Instead I will be reading a few of the books by Maud that I have not previously read. Currently on my nightstand is The Tune is in the Tree. I hope to have a review posted early next week. Up next is a novel Maud wrote jointly with her husband, Delos titled, The Gentlemen From England.

A Library is a Hospital for the Mind: 2009 Reviews of the Betsy-Tacy series. To read a review click on the title. Note: The dates that follow each title are not the dates of publication, but the time period during which each story is set. The Betsy-Tacy books were published between 1940 and 1955.

Betsy, Tacy and Tib
Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill
Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown
Heavens to Betsy
Betsy in Spite of Herself

Check back next week for links to other Maud Hart Lovelace books including the Deep Valley books, which I WILL be holding an opportunity for two lucky participants to win!
