There's a story behind it. When I was under 10 years old, I won a book from Scholastic books and I chose "Betsy, Tacy and Tib", I loved it. But I didn't know it was the 2nd book or that there were move of them.

I found that out years later but I was already an adult and decided not to read them. Then the service I use, Booksfree, got the book that had the first four stories, I decided to rent it, and I really enjoyed them! I hope the other books will be put in anthologies as well.
