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.
