The Golly Sisters Go West
by Betsy Cromer Byars and Sue Truesdell




Overview -
The squabbling, blundering Golly sisters, Rose and May-May, are off on tour in their covered wagon to dance and sing in different towns. But the sisters never seem to agree on anything: in their first show, they spend so much time arguing over who gets to wear the blue dress that their audience goes home. Then May-May mounts their horse and tries to get it to dance on stage - but the horse tears out of town with her on his back. These six hilarious tales are sure to have readers rolling in the aisles.

From the Publisher In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers-they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked - Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel's Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few - and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Grade 2 - Grade 4.
