The Plot

May-May and Rose, the singing dancing Golly Sisters, have adventures as they travel west in their covered wagon, entertaining people along the way.

  Betsy Says

The Golly Sister books are so much fun to write because I never have to sit there thinking, What can May-May and Rose do now? They do things on their own.

I have one sister, and when we were growing up, we were a little bit like the Gollys (except that we gave our shows in the backyard).

The three books are:

The Golly Sister Go West

The Golly Sisters Ride Again
Hooray for the Golly Sisters
