KIRKUS REVIEW

Mayhem and merriment combine in equal doses and descend on the quiet little village of June Hill, Sweden, whenever mischievous Meg and her devoted follower, baby-sister-Betsy, decide to exercise their potent imaginations. Playing "Moses in the Bulrushes", creating a convenient scapegoat for all ills in the form of invisible Richard, soaring off into space on an umbrella handle (though alas winding up with a brain concussion) are a few aspects of life in one Swedish household. But even being bed-ridden has its compensations -- gifts galore arrive making little Betsy wish she too could have a concussion. The delicious goodness in "bad" little girls comes rollicking through, thanks to the wit and charm of these gleeful episodes.
