Best Friends Forever

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, they do—a little girl named Tacy. And from the moment they meet at Betsy's fifth birthday party, Betsy and Tacy becoms such good friends that everyone starts to think of them as one person—Betsy-Tacy.

Betsy and Tacy have lots of fun together. They make a playhouse from a piano box, have a sand store, and dress up and go calling. And one day, they come home to a wonderful surprise—a new friend named Tib.

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

From Our Editors

Set in turn-of-the-century Deep Valley, Minnesota, this is the first in the well-loved Betsy books first published in the 1940s. Before Tacy moved into the house across the street, there was no one on Hill Street who was Betsy's age. Now that has changed, and a great friendship evolves.

Editorial Reviews

"Betsy and Tacy were two little five-year-olds, such inseparable friends that they were regarded almost as one. This is the story of their friendship in a little Minnesota town years ago." (Booklist)
