I re-read all the Betsy-Tacy books in preparation for my journey to Minnesota. They were read to me as a child and I read them myself in my childhood, but I wanted to review them before visiting the author’s hometown of Mankato, MN.
In my childhood I did not read what are known as the Deep Valley books, which take place in the same world as Betsy-Tacy but do not star Betsy or Tacy. Or even Tib. When I did the re-read I read all the Betsy-Tacy books then all the Deep Valley books. Due to the fact that most of our main players wander through (or are even large parts of) the Deep Valley books, I found myself annoyed and wishing someone had steered me to read the books in chronological order.
So this is a list of the Betsy-Tacy books with the Deep Valley novels interspersed so the timeline is not interrupted.
