Anna’s Muffin Skills Would Be Nice, Too

Dawn reviews Carney’s House Party and Winona’s Pony Cart at She Is Too Fond of Books:

The Foreword, by Melissa Wiley, looks at character development and assesses how Wiley herself has been impacted by these books.  She says that she hopes her daughters “will become … the heroines of their own lives, facing life’s challenges with Carney’s integrity, Betsy’s determination, and Winona’s sense of fun.”

    Melissa, I’m planning to say something (a big something) about the reissues over on my blog, since I’ve talked about Betsy-Tacy matters in the past. Would you have any time to do a brief “interview” of sorts via email? Thanks — and I covet Anna’s presence many a day. 🙂
