Betsy Ray and her friend Tacy live across the street from each other in the town of Deep Valley. Theirs are the last houses on the street, and since they live across from each other they can play together a lot. But even though they play together, there are many difference between them, like Betsy has brown hair while Tacy has red hair, and even though they don’t always play together they get into trouble almost every time they are together. I like Betsy-Tacy because I like the characters and what they do. I recommend Betsy-Tacy to readers.
A note from Piranha T.'s Mamma: This is the first book in a series, published in the early 1900's, and based on the author's childhood. Though she was a child around the same time as Laura Ingalls (of Little House on the Prairie fame), she lived in a town, and her life was therefore much different (though no less enchanting for the reader). A really lovely story about two little girls and their friends and family. The writing style is straightforward and timeless - though Betsy is 5 years old in this first book she will appeal to older readers equally, and she ages quickly through the series (eventually getting married!)
