"Some characters become your friends for life. That's how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy."—Judy Blume

With a Foreword by Anna Quindlen

The final two books in Maud Hart Lovelace’s beloved Betsy-Tacy series: Betsy and the Great World and Betsy’s Wedding, in one volume featuring the original cover illustration from Betsy and the Great World, along with a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen.

“There are three authors whose body of work I have re-read more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace.” —Anna Quindlen

 “Slipping into a Betsy book is like slipping into a favorite pair of well-worn slippers: It’s always a pleasure to live in Betsy’s world for a little while, to experience her simple joys, but also her (thankfully short-lived) sorrows.” —Meg Cabot

“I re-read these books every year, marveling at how a world so quaint - Shirtwaists! Pompadours! Merry Widow hats! - can feature a heroine who is undeniably modern.”
Laura Lippman

Maud Hart Lovelace (1892-1980) based her Betsy-Tacy series on her own childhood. Her series still boasts legions of fans, many of whom are members of the Betsy-Tacy Society, a national organization based in Mankato, Minnesota.
