More Betsy-Tacy

Harper Perennial just reissued the first four Betsy-Tacy books in a new treasury (with introductions by other authors who are fans, such as the great Judy Blume!). This cover includes the illustration I remember from the books I checked out at the library when I was a girl. Great memories, and a great community of readers.

The Mankato Free Press reports on the release and the activities of the Betsy-Tacy Society -- a group that is, by the way, "planning a Victorian Christmas Party, which will feature the Betsy-Tacy houses dressed up in their Victorian holiday best, refreshments, caroling and more. That event is slated for December 3."
