WHERE: Horizon Books, Traverse City, Michigan
When the forest children of Glen Lake decide to play a trick on an elderly substitute teacher, Betsy Bobcat has to make a difficult choice. Should she go along with the prank or should she risk being teased again for being a “Goody-Goody?” By sharing her feelings with family and friends, Betsy makes a decision that is true to her heart. Author Peggy Creten worked for many years as a guidance counselor in a K-8 elementary school. Her books are based on her own experiences listening to students share their problems and guiding them toward solutions. Peggy hopes her stories will encourage valuable discussions between children and parents, teachers or counselors. The setting for the Peggy Perch books is Glen Lake, Michigan, in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, where Peggy and her family have spent summers for over 60 years.
