About the book

Carolyn Haywood's stories about her irrepressible character Betsy have never been out of print, and now, thanks to dynamic new covers, the Betsy books will find their way onto the bookshelves of modern young readers--and into the hearts of a whole new generation.

Second grade holds lots of surprises for Betsy, such as her first loose tooth, a Halloween party like no other, and lots of trouble. She and her friend, Billy, try to do right, but every one of their plans winds up with the two of them right in the center of a hilarious mess.
