Some recent #bookmail , including the latest #BetsyTacy Society newsletter. The tagged book was one I‘ve seen @LeahBergen and other Littens post about. But the one I‘m most excited about is Felicia, a children‘s book about a cat who turns into a little girl. I‘ve never seen a copy that wasn‘t priced at hundreds of dollars, so I was thrilled to find a copy on eBay for $13 (including postage! 😸)
Betsy's Christmas in Milwaukee. Still one of my favorite Literary Celebrations.
“Everyone‘s coming here for the Second Christmas Day,” Mrs. Muller said at breakfast.
“Where are we going for the Third Christmas Day?”
“What is planned for the Fourth Christmas Day?”
Betsy listened in bewilderment. “How many Christmas Days do you have, for goodness‘ sake?” she demanded, and everyone laughed.
“New Year‘s puts a stop to them,” Mr. Muller said. ⬇️
Like peanut butter and jelly, cake and ice cream, and milk and cereal, Betsy and Tacy just *go* together! We meet these beloved protagonists when they are just five years old in the book my guest — the fabulous author Laura Hankin — and I discuss on this week‘s episode of my book podcast, which is called Betsy-Tacy. Tune in to our conversation about all things childhood and friendship at the link in my bio! ❤️
I love the way Emily is side-eyeing the handsome, young Sociology teacher, Jed Wakeman, in this illustration. She's clearly down to engage in a little #TeacherAppreciation and I can't say I blame her. 😉 #MaudHartLovelace #BetsyTacy #FallTreasures
"We'll act as though we owned the school! We'll saunter in with bored expressions. Won't we, Tacy?" Were anyone's #SchoolDays ever so much fun as Betsy Ray's? #BetsyTacy #MaudHartLovelace #FallTreasures
Fantastic #BookHaul today! I absolutely should not have splashed out on these annotated editions but I'm so happy that I did. Mansfield in particular is quite a chunkster and I have grand plans to dig in this fall when the weather turns chilly. Also some lovely Mitali Perkins content; there's an Emily of Deep Valley chapter so you know I wasn't letting this one pass me by! #PemberLittens #MaudHartLovelace #BetsyTacy
