I enjoyed this one more than "Betsy In Spite of Herself" for two reasons: firstly, there was a nice rehash of recent events at the beginning to clear up what was going on with each character. Secondly, it was quite a travelogue, which I liked. It was a little odd on the basis of being really only Betsy, with not much interaction with previously important characters. But I liked it.

I think it could have used a little more meat to it, though. She seemed to skim through all the adventures pretty quickly. Granted, it's meant for a younger audience, and Betsy is not a worldly-wise girl, so it's very squeaky-clean. I'm not like saying that I wish her to NOT be squeaky-clean. It just could have done with some more details. :-)
