CAROLYN HAYWOOD (1898-1990) was a native of Philadelphia. One of America's most popular authors of children's books, she published her first book, B Is for Betsy, in 1939, and wrote more than forty books in all. Many of her own childhood experiences can be found in her novels.
Once again Carolyn Haywood . . . has given us a friendly human
book, in which she writes of children with quiet humor and
uthorough nderstanding.--The New York Times Book Review
