Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill

Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill

$7.99
More Info
A Queen of Summer is going to be crowned on Hill Street, where Betsy, Tacy, and Tib live. Betsy and Tacy want Tib to be queen, for she looks just like a princess. But Betsy's older sister, Julia, has other ideas. To get votes for the election, Betsy, Tacy, and Tib go over the Big Hill to Little Syria, where a colony of refugees have come to live a better life. There the three girls make a new friend and find a way to choose a queen. They learn something, too. They learn that new Americans are sometimes the best Americans. And they learn that they themselves wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

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

    By the big red barn

    In the great green field,

    There was a pink pig

    Who was learning to squeal

    In Joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

    More Info
    Return to the world of the best-selling Greenglass House, where smugglers, magic, and pyrotechnics mix, in a new adventure from a New York Times best-selling, National Book Award-nominated, and Edgar Award-winning author.

    Lucy Bluecrowne is beginning a new life ashore with her stepmother and half brother, though she's certain the only place she'll ever belong is with her father on a ship of war as part of the crew. She doesn't care that living in a house is safer and the proper place for a twelve-year-old girl; it's boring. But then two nefarious strangers identify her little brother as the pyrotechnical prodigy they need to enact an evil plan, and it will take all Lucy's fighting instincts to keep her family together.

    Set in the magical Greenglass House world, this action-packed tale of the house's first inhabitants reveals the origins of some of its many secrets.
