There are lots of children on Hill Street, but no little girls Betsy’s age. So when a new family moves into the house across the street, Betsy hopes they will have a little girl she can play with. Sure enough, the moment Betsy meets Tacy, one of the most heartfelt friendships in all of children’s literature begins. The Betsy-Tacy Treasury brings together the first four books in Maud Hart Lovelace’s classic series: Betsy-Tacy; Betsy, Tacy and Tib; Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill; and Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown. Tracing the girls’ lives from early childhood to the brink of adolescence, Lovelace illuminates their innocent, mischievous fun and their eye-opening adventures exploring the world around them—from the stories Betsy spins from their neighborhood bench and the sand stores they run in their backyards, to their first experiences at the library, the thrill of the theater, and the sight of their first automobile.

Sometimes they quarrel with Betsy's and Tacy's bossy big sisters, but they never quarrel among themselves. They are not as good as they might be.

Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers.

Have you ever wished you could meet a book character? I grew up in Walnut Grove, Minnesota, renowned as the place where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived in On the Banks of Plum Creek, as well as the setting for the TV show Little House on the Prairie. My mom had gone to college in Mankato, knew that it had been fictionalized as Deep Valley in the Betsy-Tacy books, and suggested I give them a try. Little did she know that she would create a lifelong passion. Never, in my wildest dreams, would I have thought that one day I'd meet several of the real-life counterparts upon whom characters in the books were based, let alone correspond with their author. Betsy, Tacy and Tib - and Maud Hart Lovelace-have opened so many doors for me through the years. Without them, my life wouldn't have been this much fun! ~ Kathleen Baxter.
