Description

"Some characters become your friends for life. That's how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy." --Judy Blume

"I am fairly certain that my independent, high-spirited grandmother must have had a childhood similar to Betsy Ray's....As I read...I felt that I was having an unexpected and welcome peek into Granny's childhood." --Ann M. Martin, author of The Baby-sitter's Club

Two of Maud Hart Lovelace's beloved Deep Valley books join the Harper Perennial Modern Classics library, next to other enduring favorites like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, To Kill a Mockingbird and Lovelace's Betsy-Tacy books. This beautiful combination edition of Carney's House Party and Winona's Pony Cart features a foreword by author Melissa Wiley and a never-before-published biography of Lovelace illustrator Vera Neville.

Review quote

"Carney is one of my favorite characters in Betsy's high school Crowd, and if ever a character deserved her own book, it is Caroline Sibley, that warmhearted, capable, mirthful, intelligent girl whose home is the setting of so many lively Deep Valley adventures."--Melissa Wiley, from her foreword to Carney's House Party and Winona's Pony Cart

Back cover copy

Carney's House Party In the summer of 1911, Caroline "Carney" Sibley is home from college and looking forward to hosting a monthlong house party--catching up with the old Crowd, including her friend Betsy Ray, and introducing them to her Vassar classmate Isobel Porteous. Romance is in the air with the return of Carney's high school sweetheart, Larry Humphreys, for whom she's pined all these years. Will she like him as well as she once did? Or will the exasperating Sam Hutchinson turn her head?

Winona's Pony Cart More than anything in the world, Winona Root wants a pony for her eighth birthday. Despite her father's insistence that it's out of the question, she's wishing so hard that she's sure she'll get one--at least, that's what she tells her friends Betsy, Tacy, and Tib. . . .
